Schrock in a Hard Place


Meanwhile back in DC, Rep. Ed Schrock (R-Va.) announced that he would not run for re-election in the wake of allegations that the retired U.S. Navy captain called a gay hook-up line.

The Web site Blogactive claims to have a recording of Schrock "seeking gay sex off of gay sex lines." Other supporters of the Marriage Protection Act should expect similar treatment, the site warns.

Although his Web site makes no mention of it, a Schrock press release explains that "these allegations will not allow my campaign to focus on the real issues facing our nation and region."
