DescriptionA Republican gay-rights group presented Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) with a leadership award Wednesday night despite his vote against a repeal of the ban on allowing openly gay people to serve in the military nearly 24 hours before the event.

In an effort to build party unity around fiscal issues, the Log Cabin Republicans (LCR) honored Cornyn and five House Republicans - Reps. Pete Sessions (R-Texas), Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.), Anh “Joseph” Cao (R-La.), Judy Biggert (R-Ill.), and Charles Djou (R-Hawaii) – at a dinner banquet at the National Republican Club on Capitol Hill.

Neither Cornyn, the chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, nor Sessions, the chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, appeared in person to accept their awards.
