Republican Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake appeared on the NPR show Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me! and said, "If an NFL player can come out as gay, a Republican senator can come out as an NPR listener."
Flake, however, voted "aye" on HR 1076 in 2011 to "prohibit federal funding of National Public Radio and the use of federal funds to acquire radio content."
