MSNBC Anchor Thomas Roberts mentioned that he too is gay during Ken Mehlman Segment with GOProud chairman Christopher Barron. Barron said that he thought that Mehlman was courageous for coming out. But this shouldn't come as a surprise to most since Robert's spoke about his sexuality back on 2008 after leaving CNN.
BARRON: We know that opinion poll after opinion poll shows that the single most important factor in determining how someone feels about gay rights or about gay issues is whether or not they know someone who is gay or lesbian….
ROBERTS: I think for probably most heterosexual Americans this isn’t going to come as a big deal, but I think for millions of gay and lesbian Americans — me included — find this to be kind of a shocking admission, especially when Mehlman’s leadership, in the positions that he held, came at a time when he was part of talks that would have put discrimination into the Constitution.
