Former Texas Lawmaker Suggests Perry is Gay

Just published: Head Figure Head: The Search for the Hidden Life of Rick Perry by Glen Maxey.

Gawker: "Glen Maxey, the first openly gay member of the Texas State Legislature and longtime Democratic activist, spent most of last summer helping a reporter for a 'national news outlet' nail down persistent rumors of Rick Perry's sexual relationships with men. The story got killed. So Maxey has published an e-book laying out the evidence."

Politico reports the Perry campaign went so far as hire a "acclaimed libel lawyer" to fight the story.
