ACLJ attorney fired after online accusations of gay relationships

WASHINGTON -- A conservative Christian legal group has fired one of its senior attorneys after reports surfaced on the Internet that he may have had romantic relationships with younger men.

The American Center for Law & Justice (ACLJ) confirmed in a statement provided to Metro Weekly that James Henderson, a senior counsel with the group who focused on federal civil rights and constitutional law, had been fired from the group Sept. 25, one day after a report surfaced on a blog that he may be gay.

"He is no longer affiliated with any ACLJ entity," said Ronn Torossian of 5W Public Relations in an email to Metro Weekly. "ACLJ will not comment further on this personnel matter."

ACLJ's confirmation comes after two blogs — Exposed Politics and The Patriot-Ombudsman — published troves of information about Henderson and his relationship with two younger men. Henderson is married and has eight children.
