    I would just caution against presuming Rosen was talking that way because all members of the gay mafia know each other and all the politician's secrets.

    I don't know if Rosen has a personal relationship with Arora, or had met or was even aware of him before saying that.

    It certainly could be a message directed at ANY politician, whether one knew them personally or  not.

    Authenticity is king.

      I mean in the literary sense - that it isn't constructed in a "dear Delegate Arora" kind of way, but is much more personalized in tone.  In that sense, I don't think it's a message that could be directed at any politician.  But that could arise simply from the fact that by co-sponsoring, he positioned himself at least as an ally with whom she could think there was some meeting of the minds.  Overall, though, I agree absolutely.  It's too ambiguous to be conclusive of anything at all.
