House Republicans were set to hold a hearing today to trash the minimum wage.

Now Politico is reporting the hearing was postponed because homophobic blog posts by one of the GOP witnesses came to light -- calling to "tax and regulate homosexual acts."
The witness is economist Joseph Sabia. Here's the blog post: web.archive.org/web/2003090521…
He also wrote a blog post arguing that feminism "taught young women that equality is achieved by acting like promiscuous sluts."

That post is titled "College Girls: Unpaid Whores."

More from Sabia:

"But first we have to mount the assault on Big Gay (no, I am not talking about Rosie O'Donnell)....
"We can tax gay nightclubs, websites, personal ads, sexual paraphernalia, and so forth... We can cripple gay-related industries & get them right where we want them....
"All gay clubs will have to feature huge, flashing warning signs like 'CAUTION: Entering this nightclub may increase your chance of contracting STDs and dying.'"

^ This was the witness House Republicans were bringing in to make the case against raising the minimum wage.
