Birthplace: Covington, KY

Gender: Male

Race or Ethnicity: White
Sexual orientation: Straight
Occupation: Government, Activist

Nationality: United States
Executive summary: Family Research Council

A "family values" kind of guy, headed the Office of Policy Development during Ronald Reagan's presidency, later went on to head the Family Research Council for ten years, increasing its budget from $1M to $14M. His Republican candidacy for nomination in 1999-2000 was a miserable failure. Widespread allegations exist that Bauer had an affair with a sweet young 26 year old staffer, not exactly in keeping with the whole family values thing. Nine members of his staff resigned over this scandal. Bauer has also accepted over $100K from the Moonie cult, and in seeming reciprocity, the Family Research Council has placed multiple advertisements in the Moonie-owned Washington Times. He was also Director of Government Relations for the Direct Marketing Association from 1973 to 1980 -- yes, those sleazebags.
