California State Senate Republican Caucus: Roy Ashburn

California State Senator Roy Ashburn was once a family values conservative. Now he campaigns for gay rights.

Nearly 3 months ago California State Senator Roy Ashburn made headlines after he was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving after leaving a gay club. Now, the previously closeted Senator is garnering attention for changing his staunch anti gay-rights approach. Do the soon-to-be termed-out Senator’s newly voiced opinions still represent his constituents?
