HUD reports landlords aloof about same-sex couples; Idaho GOP wants to repeal local non-discrimination ordinances

HUD (the Department of Housing and Urban Development) is reporting a disturbing study on the responses of landlords to same-sex couples to email campaigns when compared to straight couples.
The HUD report  (several authors) is here

The Advocate also has a story about the study by Trudy Ring, link (website url) here. 

Log Cabin Republicans (L:CR) has a disturbing story about an effort by the Idaho GOP to have the state legislature pass a law voiding all local non-discrimination ordinances, link here

A group called Gay Home Stays (link)  has also publicized the report about the housing problem.
I did not experience discrimination when renting alone at any time.
