Obama Appoints Gay Man
as White House Humanities Liaison

Jeremy Bernard, a major fund-raiser for Barack Obama's presidential campaign, was tapped this week by the president to serve as the White House liaison to the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Jeremy Bernard, a major fund-raiser for Barack Obama's presidential campaign, was tapped this week by the president to serve as the White House liaison to the National Endowment for the Humanities, reports the Washington Blade.

Bernard's job will mean he'll serve as the point person between the White House and the NEH, a government agency that provides grants to research and programs in the humanities.

Bernard and his partner, Rufus Gifford, raised oodles of money for Obama's campaign. Gifford was appointed last month as finance director for the Democratic National Committee. Bernard and Gifford live in Los Angeles, so it looks like a move to Washington, D.C., is most likely in the works for the power couple.

Bernard worked for Bill Clinton's 1992 presidential campaign and in the late '90s served on a presidential advisory committee at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. (Neal Broverman, Advocate.com)
