Trump hands top job to Republican who was too homophobic for Congress

Trump hands top job to Republican who was too homophobic for Congress
- Scott Garrett served in the U.S. House of Representatives for New Jersey’s 5th district from 2003 until he lost his seat last year.

A strong opponent of LGBT rights, Garrett crashed in his 2016 re-election campaign after a contentious battle over homophobic remarks.

Garrett had refused to pay his dues to the National Republican Congressional Committee, explaining in a GOP congressional meeting that he would boycott the national committee because it had supported gay candidates.
