The Washington, D.C. Log Cabin Republicans, a chapter of the national gay Republicans organization, has recommended that the national organization endorse presidential candidate Mitt Romney with a “qualifier” clarifying their disdain for his anti-LGBT stances.
“After a lengthy, wide-ranging, and honest discussion, our members voted overwhelmingly to encourage you to endorse the Romney-Ryan ticket,” D.C. Log Cabin Republicans President Robert Turner II states in the letter. “However, the remaining few, as well as some members of the majority, expressed legitimate concerns as to the anti-gay positions the candidates have assumed on certain issues of significance to our community generally, and gay Republicans specifically,” Turner says in the letter.
Hey, here’s another idea: how about endorsing a president who doesn’t sincerely believe you’re a second-class citizen? Sheesh. LCR freaks me out sometimes.
