November 23, 2014 - Speaker designate Ira Hansen withdrawing from position ,Being Gay Is Bad For You?

After Assembly Speaker-designate Ira Hansen, R-Sparks, was confronted with sexist, misogynist and racist writings from his days at the Sparks Tribune, he apologized by saying that was a long time ago.
“I am deeply sorry that comments I have made in the past have offended many Nevadans. It is unfortunate that these comments, made almost 20 years ago as a newspaper columnist and talk radio host, have been taken out of context and are being portrayed as intentionally hurtful and disrespectful,” Hansen wrote.
Hansen started writing for the Sparks Tribune in 1994, and continued through 2010. (That wasn’t all that long ago, by the way. Hansen, who was born in 1960, was 34 when he began writing for the Tribune, old enough to know better.)
But maybe things have changed from between 20 to four years ago, right?
Apparently not.
I’ve obtained a letter Hansen wrote May 21, 2013, on his official state letterhead, to oppose a Senate resolution that seeks to repeal the state constitution’s ban on gay marriage and legalize gay marriage in Nevada. And let’s just say he doesn’t exactly take a progressive position on the subject. (The letter is linked below.)
