Conservative Republican politician Aaron Schock gay chatter rumors intensify

Republican Congressman Aaron Schock (R)

What happens when an allegedly closeted conservative seemingly anti-gay politician angers some gay people in the media?

A public outing ensues.

DListed (through Queerty.com) posted the Facebook writings of gay CBS anchor Itay Hod, who has essentially outed Republican Congressman Aaron Schock:

Allegedly very gay Schock is on record for being anti-gay:

-Schock voted against adding sexual orientation to the already-existing hate crimes law.
-Schock opposed the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.
-Schock opposes the repeal of DOMA.
-Schock is against gay marriage; and
-Schock is for the Federal Marriage Amendment, which would add language to the US Constitution banning gay marriage and likely striking down every gay rights law and ordinance in the country.

So, the story gets worse:

Hod writes:

"here's a hypothetical: what if you know a certain GOP congressman, let's just say from Illinois, is gay... and you know this because one of your friends, a journalist for a reputable network, told you in no uncertain terms that he caught that GOP congressman and his male roommate in the shower... together. now they could have been good friends just trying to conserve water. but there's more. what if this congressman has also been caught by tmz cameras trolling gay bars. now what if you know that this very same guy, the darling of the gop, has also voted against repeal of don't ask don't tell, opposed the repeal of doma, is against gay marriage; and for the federal marriage amendment, which would add language to the us constitution banning gay marriage and would likely strike down every gay rights law and ordinance in the country?

Are we still not allowed to out him?"

Then, AmericaBlog.com recorded the Instagram posts (since locked) of the allegedly gay congressman:
