A couple of Iowa state representatives have recently staked their claims to inclusion in the antigay crazy hall of shame. Rep. Bobby Kaufmann has called for an investigation into the Governor’s Conference on LGBTQ Youth, held annually in Iowa since 2006, because of reports that last year’s event included inappropriate sexual material. (The report came from Family Leader, so consider the source.) Kaufmann, who chairs the House Government Oversight Committee, initially planned to have the whole committee hold a hearing, but he scaled that back and appointed two people, Republican Rep. Greg Heartsill and Democratic Rep. Phyllis Thede, to do the investigation. Thede is an LGBT ally, but Kaufmann and Heartsill both have extremely anti-LGBT records, although Heartsill once admitted he didn’t know what the initials “LGBTQ” stood for. It’s questionable whether they have any jurisdiction over the conference, as despite the name, it receives no state funds. But they are forging ahead, although Kaufmann’s offended by some of the public responses to investigation, especially an email alleging that he and Heartsill are lovers. “I am here to announce that Rep. Heartsill and I are not in a homosexual relationship,” Kaufmann told the committee last week.
