The head of New York State's largest LGBT civil rights organization is calling for an end to financial support by gays of Hillary Rodham Clinton's re-election campaign because of her refusal to support same-sex marriage. The call was made by Alan Van Capelle, Pride Agenda's executive director in a confidential memo to the group's board members.We are happy to see someone say the emperor has no clothes—even if it was in a private memo.
Van Capelle said in his memo to board members that he refuses to help sell tickets or endorse any Clinton fund-raiser sponsored by gay groups because her re-election would actually hurt the gay and lesbian community.
"We have become a community that throws money at politicians, and we demand nothing in return. And that's what we get: nothing. It's the wrong message to send."That's one person telling it like he sees it. Now, if he could just convice his board members and the rest of the GLBT voting public to think for themselves instead of blindly voting a straight Democratic ticket.
