Lobbyist Behind Anti-Gay Bill Has Gay Brother

The Republican lobbyist "hawking a bill that would bar gays from playing in the National Football League has a younger brother who is gay," the Huffington Post reports.

Said Jim Burkman: "He is my brother and I love him, and we don't see eye-to-eye on any political issues, certainly gay rights. But I told him years ago he should back off on gay issues, and if he ever crosses the line I would be happy to speak up as his gay brother. Today I felt he crossed the line."
