Arizona GOP US Sen. Jeff Flake Comes Out Against Anti-Gay Hate Bill

Flake is no ally of the LGBT community and has a 0% rating from the Human Rights Campaign. But to my mind that only makes today’s move only more important as it probably comes from the standpoint of what the bill could mean for Arizona’s economy.  Last year Flake was the target of a recall campaign by the Tea Party, who are furious over his support for immigration reform. In that regard, at least, he could be considered a relatively moderate Republican.
