Holy McGreeveys, Batman! 
Congressman Ed Schrock, R-Va(2 - Norfolk/Virginia Beach), a co-sponsor of the Federal Marriage Amendment, abrubptly announced today that, due to 'unspecified allegations "that have called into question my ability" to serve"', he was withdrawing from his re-election bid and retiring from Congress. His announcement not only took Democratic opponent David B. Ashe by surprise, it also came as a shock to the Virginia Republican Party.

Schrock, a darling of the Republican leadership and recipient of a 92% rating from the Christian Coalition, has been one of leaders of anti-gay forces in Congress. He has also just been outed as gay. There are reports on the web that he's in the habit of rendezvousing with gay men via the MegaMates telephone dating service and, rather than denying them, has chosen to resign.
