UPDATE. Freedom Caucus 'crazy' Scott Garrett (R-NJ) doesn't like the gays

Quoted in Anti-Gay Remarks Lost A Congressman Wall Street, And Maybe His House Seat.  (NPR, 10/29/2016)
In a closed-door meeting with the National Republican Congressional Committee in 2015, Garrett reportedly said he would withhold his dues unless the party stopped supporting gay candidates. After those comments leaked to the press, Garrett found himself doing damage control.

“I think it signals the crazies have taken over the party, taken over to the party that you can remove a speaker of the House who’s second in line to be president, a constitutional officer in the middle of his term with no allegations of impropriety, a person who’s honest and doing his job."
Rep. Peter King (R-NY)
