Dems put gays below illegal immigrants on list of priorities

UPDATE 5/3/06: Howard Dean has fired Yandura's partner, Donald Hitchcock, from his job at the DNC, in retaliation for Yandura speaking up.

Democratic Party loyalist and gay former staffer from the Clinton White House, Paul Yandura, recently decided enough was enough:

In his letter, Yandura pointed to efforts by the DNC to purchase television ads attacking Republican-led efforts to pass legislation in Congress that most Democrats considers harmful to immigrants.

"It's the right thing to do, and I applaud their action," he said. "Why then is it so difficult for them to do the same for us?

"Why are gays and lesbians continually left to fight these battles alone?" he asked. "Where are our allies?"

In the Libertarian Party, Paul. (And we support the right of peaceful people to freely cross borders, as well.)
