Is there a list of the members of congress against Wojnarowicz?

Does anyone know where I can find a list of the ubiquitous "several conservative members of congress" who recently spoke out against the clip from David Wojnarowicz's "A Fire In My Belly" video at the National Portrait Gallery?

After doing a fair bit of searching on this subject I can't seem to figure out who those members of congress were (with the exceptions of Eric cantor and Jack Kingston.) This seems like fairly bad reporting to me, I would really appreciate it if the news organizations told us who was calling for censorship...

The New York Times had several pieces covering this.

This blog post in their ArtsBeat blog by Dave Itzkoff has the actual quotes from Eric Cantor in addition to a link to the Fox News Interview.

It also includes statements from Bill Donahue of the Catholic League who lodged the complaint that resulted in the piece being taken down in the first place.
