During a recent town hall meeting in Winder, U.S. Rep. Paul Broun, a Republican from Athens, wanted people to be clear he is secure with his gender identity.
"I don't want to pay for a sex change operation. I'm not interested. I like being a boy," he said in his criticism of the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.
Broun threw his hat into the ring for Sen. Saxby Chambliss' seat after Chambliss said he was not seeking another term because he's tired of all the gridlock in Washington, D.C. Chambliss also made headlines when he vocalized his opposition to same sex marriage with the pithy statement, "I'm not gay, so I'm not going to marry one."
Watch comedian Stephen Colbert take down Chambliss is this amazing clip.
Broun is no stranger to anti-gay rhetoric (plus he's just plain whacky). He voted against the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell and introduced a Constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage.
In October, Broun — an M.D. doctor with a B.S in chemistry — made national headlines again by saying, "All that stuff I was taught about evolution and embryology and the Big Bang Theory, all that is lies straight from the pit of Hell."
