First openly gay Federal judge confirmed

Apparently the first Federal judge who is openly gay prior to being confirmed by the Senate.

I'm curious as to which 13 Senators voted against him. There might be plenty of reasons beyond sexual orientation to oppose him, but I'll leave that up to somebody else to look at.
