This Kos entry describes a blogger who is planning to "out" homosexual staffers of congresscritters who support the hate amendment or its cousins. It also suggests that it would be "delicious" to "out" those congresspeople who support the Federal Marrriage Amendment, and who cheat on their spouse.

I decidedly do not think it is appropriate to "out" homosexuals to advance a cause, no matter how hypocritical that person is being, and no matter how important that cause is. This would do little more than serve as an attack on individuals and their privacy, and lend credibility to smears against homosexuals as petty and back-biting. I hope that the gentleman in question will change his mind and decide to take the high road instead.

On the other hand, Kos is quite right that "outing" adulterers who are hypocritically supporting the FMA for reasons of "protecting traditional marriage" is quite appropriate. Those are the true hypocrites, and those truly deserving of public shame and scorn.
