Aide to Conservative Congressman Comes Out

Tracey St. Pierre, the chief of staff for Rep. Charles Canady (R-Fla.), announced that she is a lesbian and has quit to work as a lobbyist for the Human Rights Campaign (HRC). St. Pierre told this week’s The Hill that she will lobby Congress for gay rights through HRC, the nation’s largest homosexual organization.

Her announcement stunned her conservative colleagues, as Canady is known for his strong stance against same-sex marriage.
