Abstract: Gay Republican groups face significant obstacles in promoting their own visibility as the primary media representation of gay Republicans focuses on the litany of gay sex scandals that have emerged in the last several years. The dominance of the closeted gay Republican besieged by scandal presents a growing problem for those who attempt to promote LGBT rights from within a party whose conservative values they share while
those values often serve to exclude them. Media discourses of “gay Republicans” construct an essentialist gay identity that reduces politics for gay people to gay issues only. Furthermore, the conflation of gay Republican with Republican sex scandal foregrounds discourses of the closet and self-loathing that serve to preclude the legitimacy of gay republican identities.

Abstract: Much of the research on voter decision-making in American politics focuses on the partisanship of the individual voter. While federal elections in the US, and most state-level elections, continue to be conducted in a partisan environment, local elections are increasingly conducted in nonpartisan environments. Proponents of nonpartisan elections envision a world in which voters abandon their “standing decisions” and make decisions based on careful consideration of the issues. The appeal of nonpartisan elections relies on the assumption that voters in nonpartisan elections do not frame their choice in partisan terms, but instead cast ballots in nonpartisan elections in a different manner than they do in partisan elections. In this paper, I ask whether voters in a nonpartisan campaign environment recast the election in partisan terms. To answer this question, I review the research on voter decision making in a nonpartisan electoral environment. My general thesis is that certain types of voters in a nonpartisan environment behave as if they were in a partisan environment. To test the hypotheses stemming from this argument, I use an experimental design explicitly exposing subjects to a nonpartisan mayoral candidate. I find certain types of individuals, such as political sophisticates, strong partisans, and ideologues, have little trouble attributing a partisan affiliation to a nonpartisan candidate based only on his positions on a given set of issues. These findings suggest that nonpartisan elections likely matter most for those least likely to vote in nonpartisan elections: political non-sophisticates, weak partisans or independents, and moderates.

Racial Identification and Republican Partisanship among African Americans" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association Annual Meeting, Sheraton Boston and the Boston Marriott Copley Place, Boston, MA, Jul 31, 2008 Online <PDF>. 2018-10-15 <>

Abstract: Although they have garnered popular notice as both outspoken rebels and racial sell-outs, very little scholarly attention has been devoted to contemporary African American Republicans. This paper examines the factors associated with Republican affiliation among African Americans. Specifically, the paper explores whether African American Republicans have lower levels of racial identification. Using data from the 1996 National Black Election Study, the findings suggest racial identification alone is not a good predictor of partisan choice among African Americans. Furthermore, outside of age, individual level factors are not strongly correlated with Republican affiliation among African Americans. The findings suggest that future research must be sensitive to the possibility that the political relevance of racial identity might vary across members of the same racial group, and turn attention to the processes through which racial identification becomes relevant for political decision making.

Abstract: This paper examines the renewal of a strong republican public philosophy in France since the late 1980s. The postwar migration to France of millions of non-European denizens who do not share the French collective memory has posed myriad challenges for traditional understandings of French citizenship. This paper elucidates the significant influence of several highly influential and media-friendly philosophes, who jettisoned poststructuralism as well as the multiculturalist approach to the citizenship question in favor of what Patrick Weil has called the "new republican synthesis."
