Iowa Official to Receive White House Honor

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -- An elected official in eastern Iowa is the recipient of a White House honor given to openly gay, lesbian and transgendered public officials.
  Johnson County Recorder Kim Painter was one of 10 openly LGBT public officials from across the country to receive the White House's Champion of Change honor Wednesday.
   The awards are given on the birthday of Harvey Milk, who became one of the first openly gay people to serve in elected office when he won a seat on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in 1977.
   Painter has been openly gay since she first ran for county recorder 15 years ago, winning the 1998 general election by 52 percent. She's won re-election since by wide margins.
