Republican praises lesbian Democrat for her work on joint budget panel

CONWAY, Ark. — State Sen. Gilbert Baker says he does not think the Arkansas GOP chairman should be raising a state lawmaker’s homosexuality as an issue during party appearances.

State Republican Party Chairman Doyle Webb when criticizing Democrats has reportedly mentioned the fact that state Rep. Kathy Webb of Little Rock is a lesbian.

Baker is a former state GOP chairman and he co-chairs the Joint Budget Committee. Baker didn’t elaborate on why he doesn’t think it is proper for Doyle Webb to mention Kathy Webb’s sexuality. But Baker praised Kathy Webb’s work as a member of the joint budget panel.
