Bob Dixon is a state senator in Missouri, and a candidate for governor of Missouri in 2016. He is also an ex-homosexual.
As a young man, he self-identified as a homosexual but then turned his live around, got married, and had three children with his wife.
In July 2015, the liberal media publicized his past as a homosexual, perhaps thinking that would hurt his candidacy or advance the homosexual agenda. In fact, it did the opposite, as he admitted that he is an ex-homosexual and declared the following:

Bob Dixon, is claiming to be a former gay person. TPM reported yesterday: Dixon, who is now married to a woman and had three children with her, revealed in 1991 that he had identified as gay for five years until a “religious experience” led him to be straight again, according to a 1992 report from the Springfield News-Leader, which was resurfaced last week by the Riverfront Times. ... In 1991, Dixon told attendees at a Springfield, Mo., city council meeting about his time as a gay man, but did not elaborate on his “religious experience,” which he said happened in October 1988, according to the News-Leader. Dixon is now running on a statewide platform that includes opposition to marriage equality. Missouri’s Springfield News-Leader reported late yesterday that Dixon says he was abused as a child, “and this abuse led to the confusion he felt about his sexuality,” leading him to identify as gay for five years. In a statement, the Republican lawmaker added, “I have put the childhood abuse, and the teenage confusion behind me. What others intended for harm has resulted in untold good. I have overcome, and will not allow evil to win.””
