Maine, the oldest state, now has the nation’s youngest House speaker in modern history. At 28, Ryan Fecteau is also the first out gay person in the Maine Legislature’s most powerful role, according to Maine’s House Clerk and the National Conference of State Legislatures. He was elected by his House colleagues on Wednesday.⁠

  1. His sexual orientation matters? I don’t see the correlation to his ability to represent the people of Maine and, his privacy. The republic could use an enema, as Representative Fecteau’s personal life isn’t a factor in his ability in doing his job as an elected official. No more so than a married man’s ability to negotiate flying a jet fighter, compared to that of a single man. I’m quite sure that the people of his district weren’t thinking of sending a gay man to Washington to represent them. I’m confident that, their thought was to send someone young and vibrant to effectively represent the people of his district.
