Dick Cheney, advocate for civil rights

Dave Weigel on the courting of a Maryland legislator as that state moves to consider gay marriage:
He also became the target of a last-minute lobby effort, and said his voice mail was full of messages from important people, including [Ken] Mehlman, [Michael] Bloomberg and an offer to talk with former Vice President Dick Cheney, whom Kach regards as a "great man." All three are recognized for their support of gay rights issues.
Of course, Cheney has a gay daughter, but I suspect there are plenty of GOP pols with gay family who nonetheless oppose gay marriage.

Credit where it's due ....
