A Republican lawmaker from rural central Pennsylvania, who describes himself as a conservative Christian, made history as the first openly gay member of the state legislature.

Rep. Mike Fleck, 39, of Huntingdon, disclosed that he is gay in an interview with the Huntingdon Daily News that was published Saturday.

Fleck, who recently separated from his wife of almost a decade, told the newspaper that he struggled with his sexuality for years and hopes his openness will help others better understand the journey people have to take to live an authentic life.

"Coming out is hard enough, but doing it in the public eye is definitely something I never anticipated," he said.

So.... money is more important to him than dignity... or even being treated like a 1st class citizen. Being treated like a 2nd class citizen is something he is about to learn a lot about, now that he's not pretending to be straight, and sneaking around with a wife and everything, anymore.

[TD]Why not before the election?

Guess he didn't want to lose any votes from the Santorum wing of his party.
