Bow hunting should be viewed with the same horror as bull fighting, cock fighting or dog fighting

The first openly gay Cabinet Secretary will be in the line of succession

I'd heard that Mayor Pete, Biden's pick to be Secretary of Transportation, will be the first openly gay Cabinet Secretary. I looked up where that Cabinet member would stand in the line of succession to the Presidency. The only chart I could find was the current line of succession, with Elaine Chao as Transportation Secretary in the 14th spot (but since she's foreign born, not eligible).
So I assume that means Mayor Pete (soon to be Mr. Secretary Pete) will be the first openly gay person to stand in the line of succession to the Presidency!
