Anti-Gay GOPster Caught With Pants Down

The District 33 lawmaker has been a steady advocate for so-called
pro-family legislation, including voluntary school prayer, crime-fighting
measures and anti-tax issues.
Couch also joined 14 other state legislators last fall in writing a
letter to the Walt Disney Co. criticizing its new policy of extending health
insurance to partners of gay and lesbian employees...
