REPORT: Gay Friendly GOP Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen Has A Transgender Son

Two weeks ago Miami-based Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen became the latest top enemy of the Christian right when she became the first GOP member of the U.S. House to co-sponsor the repeal of DOMA. While Ros-Lehtinen typically hews closely to other GOP goals and voted for the Defense of Marriage Act in 1996, of late she has consistently been on the side of good when it comes to LGBT rights. Today the Miami Herald notes that Ros-Lehtinen has a transgender son named Rodrigo, news that NOM immediately pointed to as the source of her treason.
