Congressman Who Lost Seat Over Anti-Gay Remarks Tapped By Trump For Big Agency Job

Congressman Who Lost Seat Over Anti-Gay Remarks Tapped By Trump For Big Agency Job
- In 2015, Garrett told fellow Republicans in a closed-door meeting that he wouldn’t pay his dues to the National Republican Congressional Committee because the organization supported some gay candidates, Politico reported.
Garrett has since clarified that he doesn’t oppose gay people running for office, but he believes the GOP should not support candidates who back same-sex marriage.His comments cost him support from Wall Street donors, who had been a major source of funding for his previous campaigns. It was a notable show of no confidence since the congressman chaired a key House financial services subcommittee, and financial firms would normally want to curry his favor.
