Rep. Randy Forbes: Deny money to gay candidates (http://www.politico.com/story/2013/12/gay-republican-candidates-100686.html?hp=f2)


Virginia Rep. Randy Forbes, a senior House Republican eyeing a powerful committee chairmanship, is causing friction with some of his colleagues by pushing the House GOP campaign arm to deny support for some of the party’s gay congressional candidates.

Forbes has waged a lengthy crusade to convince his colleagues and the National Republican Congressional Committee brass they shouldn’t back some gay candidates. His efforts on Capitol Hill were described to POLITICO by more than a half-dozen sources with direct knowledge of the talks.

The issue is particularly acute because House Republicans have two promising openly gay candidates in 2014 vying for seats held by Democrats. Richard Tisei, who narrowly lost to Democratic Rep. John Tierney in 2012, is running again in northeastern Massachusetts. And in San Diego, Carl DeMaio, a former city councilman, is trying to knock off Democratic Rep. Scott Peters.

Neither DeMaio nor Tisei responded to messages on their cellphones seeking comment.

Honestly, why is it necessary to turn off every group imaginable?

Why is abortion so important to you? Serious question. It's the only issue you are so adamant about around here, and you've brought it up in totally unrelated discussions.

If they want to protect the 1-10 amendments they could be drag queens and I'd vote for them. Nonissue

There's a gay candidate considering a primary challenge to Lindsay Graham and actually has a far better constitutional/civil liberties stance than Graham. Why on earth should we pick Graham?

I agree that it's a non-issue.

Drag queens? They could literally be sucking dick and doing coke during the debates and whatnot, and as long I had confidence they'd protect the Bill of Rights, I'd vote and advocate for said person happily.

It is the religious right. The GOP doesn't really like them, only their votes.

I find that to many American women, the abortion issue is the only political issue that they care about.

Women are kinda funny that way, when Men try to control their bodies.
