Recent events

Following the indictment of Tom DeLay on September 28, 2005, Dreier was widely expected to temporarily assume the position of House Majority Leader. [2]. Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert favored Dreier for the position, presumably because Dreier has consistently adhered to the views of the Republican leadership and would have been willing to relinquish the title immediately should DeLay be able to return to the Majority Leader position. However, a conference of rank-and-file Republican representatives disapproved of the choice of Dreier in such a senior position largely, according to some sources, because of Dreier's long-rumored homosexuality, and also because many conservative Republican House members believe that Dreier is too politically moderate . Yet according to Dreier spokeswoman Jo Maney, Dreier declined the temporary Majority Leader position because he "would have had to give up his chairmanship of the Rules Committee to move to another position, and that's not something that he wanted to do."

Campaign 2004 & the Gay Partner Employment Issue

In the fall of 2004, Dreier was formally "outed" in print by journalist Doug Ireland in an alternative newspaper, L.A. Weekly, in its issue of September 24-30, 2004.[5][6] The L.A. Weekly reported that Dreier has had a romantic relationship with his longtime (male) chief of staff, Brad W. Smith, who collects a $156,600 government salary for his services to Dreier. Smith collects the highest possible salary allowed by law for a committee staff member,[7], and is reportedly the highest-paid chief of staff working for any House of Representatives committee chair. ("By comparison," wrote Ireland, "the chief of staff to the chair of the House Judiciary Committee makes $126,000, while the chief of staff to the chair of the House Ways and Means Committee makes just $100,696.")[8] Outing is the practice of deliberately making public another persons concealed or barely-concealed sexual identity or orientation, without that persons consent. ... Doug Ireland is an American journalist and blogger who writes frequently about gay politics. ... The L.A. Weekly is a weekly free paper in Los Angeles. ...


The outing was a result of Dreier coming under increasing scrutiny from gay rights groups because of what they characterize as an anti-gay voting record in Congress, which includes support of the Defense of Marriage Act (signed by President Clinton), as well as votes against gay people adopting children, and against inclusion of homosexuality as a protected status in hate crime and employment discrimination legislation. Many consider his record to be especially disturbing in light of recent speculation and reporting that he himself is gay [9] [10], although other people believe that Dreier's votes on legislation concerning the rights of gay people have merely reflected his constituents' wishes and that his own sexual orientation is a private matter and irrelevant. The Defense of Marriage Act, or DOMA is a federal law of the United States passed by Congress and signed by President Bill Clinton on September 21, 1996. ...

Dreier's 1998 and 2000 Democratic opponent, Janice Nelson, came forward to claim that his relationship to Smith had been an open secret for many years. His 2004 opponent, Cynthia Matthews, came out of the closet and demanded that Dreier do the same. Dreier did not publicly respond to these charges, which were discussed on local radio programs in his district. At the time, the mainstream U.S. print media did not pick the story up (although the controversy was later, in June 2005, addressed in the British press [11][12] after it was announced that British prime minister Tony Blair's son Euan would work as an unpaid intern for Dreier's committee during the summer of 2005). 1998 (MCMXCVIII) is a common year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar, and was designated the International Year of the Ocean. ...

In the midst of the controversy, Dreier voted against the Federal Marriage Amendment on September 30, 2004. He explained his opposition to the amendment by stating that he felt the Constitution was not the appropriate tool for restricting rights. The Federal Marriage Amendment (FMA) is a proposed amendment to the United States Constitution which would define marriage in the United States as a union of one man and one woman. ...

While being hit from the left, Dreier was also attacked from the right, due to what some radio talk show hosts viewed as a lax policy on curbing illegal immigration.[13] Dreier was accused of not supporting reimbursement of expenses incurred by state and local governments to serve illegal immigrants, supporting increases in the numbers of H1B visas allowed for skilled workers, not acting effectively enough in obtaining the extradition of a suspect who allegedly killed a Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department deputy, and supporting amnesty for illegal immigrants.

The National Republican Congressional Committee filed a complaint with the Federal Elections Commission (FEC) against one radio talk show (The "John and Ken Show," on Los Angeles station KFI) alleging that the hosts, employees of Clear Channel Communications, were engaging in an illegal contribution to Matthews's campaign. The hosts held regular anti-Dreier rallies at his Glendora field office, had Matthews on frequently to discuss her positions on immigration, and dissected statements made by Dreier to other media outlets. While Dreier was not the originator of the complaint, and disavowed orchestrating the complaint, many political analysts suspected Dreier's involvement as an attempt to muzzle two critical talk radio hosts. The hosts continued the allegedly infringing activity through the election and as of September 28, 2005, the FEC has not taken any action against the hosts or the station. In an interview on KABC's Doug McIntyre program, Dreier denied the charges regarding immigration.

In spite of outspending his opponent by nearly 30-1 [15], having his opponent ostracized by the Democratic Party, and being in a solidly Republican district, Dreier won his 2004 race with 54% of the vote, the lowest incumbent win for any U.S. representative from California [16] in the 2004 election and Dreier's worst total since 1980. Anti-illegal immigration advocates predict that he will face a formidable conservative challenger in his 2006 primary, although most political observers believe that the Republican Party will actively support Dreier's bid for re-election. The Democratic Party, which traces its heritage back to 1792, is the longest-standing political party in the world (unless one considers the British Conservative Party to be an extension of the much older Tories). ...

On October 2, 2005, Dreier announced he would be running for re-election. Flanked by the mayor of the city of San Dimas and the Los Angeles County Sheriff, Dreier will campaign on a platform on being tough on illegal immigration, supporting the War on Terror, and supporting harsher penalties for those who commit crimes against law enforcement. La Cañada businessman Sonny Sardo has announced that he will challenge Dreier for his seat in the June 6, 2006, Republican Primary. Russ Warner, a Democrat, has announced his intention to run against Dreier in the 2006 General Election.
