He said that’s led wealthy gay-rights activists, particularly Denver philanthropist Tim Gill, to spend millions of dollars against her in the three most recent elections. ‘The radical homosexual movement driven by Tim Gill hates Marilyn Musgrave, and they are willing to spend anything and everything to settle their vindictive agenda,’ Thielman said.”

road.jpg OUT: Jesse Oxfeld on gay reporters on the campaign trail “It’s a job that requires you to have some of the attributes of a loner — few commitments, an ability to pick up and disappear from your life — without having the personality of a loner. You have to be social enough and socially adroit enough to read people, talk to people, and get them to talk to you. ‘Is it a total surprise to me, if I were to go and look at it analytically, that gay guys want to be political reporters, and might excel at it?’ asks another reporter. ‘No. Because to be a good political reporter you have to be interested in power and sophisticated in seeing where it works and how it shifts. And I buy into the theory that growing up as a kid who feels different, you get to be very sophisticated about where power is, just in your own experience. You feel outsiderish, and you have that critical perspective.'”
