    Anti-Gay GOP CA State Sen. Roy Ashburn Busted For DUI After Leaving Sacramento Gay Bar

    Sources: Lawmaker At Gay Club Before DUI Arrest - cbs13.com

    Sources: Lawmaker At Gay Club Before DUI Arrest

    Sources tell CBS13 a state senator from Southern California was arrested for allegedly driving drunk after leaving Faces, a gay nightclub in midtown Sacramento, early Wednesday morning.

    The California Highway Patrol pulled over Senator Roy Ashburn at 2:00 a.m. Wednesday after an officer noticed a black Chevy Tahoe swerving at 13th and L Streets.

    When the officer stopped the state-issued vehicle, the driver identified himself as Senator Ashburn. He was arrested without incident and charged with two misdemeanors: driving under the influence and driving with a blood alcohol level higher than .08% or higher.

    A male passenger, who was not identified as a lawmaker, was also in the car but was not detained.

    Ashburn was booked into the Sacramento County Jail and released on $1,400 bond.

    Ashburn, a father of four, is a Republican Senator representing parts of Kern, Tulare and San Bernardino Counties with a history of opposing gay rights.

    Ashburn issued a statement on the arrest Wednesday afternoon:

    "I am deeply sorry for my actions and offer no excuse for my poor judgment. I accept complete responsibility for my conduct and am prepared to accept the consequences for what I did. I am also truly sorry for the impact this incident will have on those who support and trust me my family, my constituents, my friends, and my colleagues in the Senate."

    Ashburn served six years as a state Assemblyman before being elected to the State Senate.

    Mr. Ashburn, you deserve everything that comes your way because of this, you @#$%^&* hypocrite!
    CHIRP! CHIRP!

    "I was...uh...doing research into the horrific after-dark activities of the godless sodomites! And that also explains the glitter on the underpants that were found behind the stall of a truck stop bathroom that had my name written on the waistband."

    What a jerkoff. To be gay and keep it hidden is one thing...that is a burden that I'm not sure very many people can understand. But to be actively pressing against gay rights while being a closeted gay person? F him.

    Nothing at all surprising about this considering he's a politician. I'm used to them being two faced.

    Despite previous protests, he may enjoy his jail time.

    So, in the traditional news fashion - is he "anti-gay" or did he vote against something gays wanted?

    One thing he voted no on was this bill - which passed anyway:

    "This bill updates various provisions in different codes dealing with discrimination in contracting, insurance, workers compensation, court-appointed child advocacy, and prepaid health plans to ensure that proper reference is made to the classes protected under the Unruh Civil Rights Act (Section 51 of the Civil Code), or to Section 11135 of the Government Code which prohibits discrimination in state-funded programs and activities based on race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, disability, medical condition, sex (including gender identity), marital status, and sexual orientation), or to the Fair Employment and Housing Act (Section 12926.1 of the Government Code). Thus, this bill harmonizes and makes consistent these anti-discrimination statutes spread across various state codes. In doing so, this bill expands the protected classes in some statutes to encompass those recently added to the Unruh Civil Rights Act or to Sections 11135 and 12926.1 of the Government Code."
