The Republicans' Gay Hart

From a Washington Post story about a pair of longtime Republican activists being named to top posts at the Corporation For Public Broadcasting:

Cheryl F. Halpern, a New Jersey lawyer and real estate developer, won approval from the CPB's board... The board also elected another conservative, Gay Hart Gaines, as its vice chairman. Gaines, an interior decorator by training, was a charter member and a chairman of GOPAC, a Republican fundraising group that then-Rep. Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) used to engineer the GOP takeover of the House in 1994.
Gaines, the article tells us, is a woman. But how someone with the name "Gay Hart"- who is an interior decorator- managed to rise high in the realm of Republican politics is among the great ironies of our age.
