Mary Cheney Gives Cash to Anti-Gay Candidate for Congress

Mary Cheney, the lesbian daughter of former VP Dick Cheney, has thrown $1,000 behind Rob Portman, a Congressional candidate from Ohio who believes she should not be able to adopt children or marry her partner:

Raw StoryPortman_cheney "Cheney, 40, has a two-year old son with her partner of 17 years, Heather Poe. The donation to former Rep. Rob Portman (R-OH) was made in May. Portman is seeking the Senate seat that will be vacated by Sen. George Voinovich (R-OH) when he retires in 2011....As an Ohio congressman, Portman voted yes on banning gay adoptions in the District of Columbia in 1999. He also voted in favor of a constitutional amendment banning same sex marriage in 2004. Portman’s opposition to same-sex marriage is particularly salient, because both of his potential Democratic challengers favor its legalization. Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner reaffirmed her backing for gay marriage in a posting at The Huffington Post in June, and a spokesman for Ohio Lt. Gov. Lee Fisher announced that he’d reversed his opposition the same month. Robert Paduchik, Portman’s campaign manager, told the Columbus Dispatch in June that the erstwhile congressman still opposes same-sex marriage. 'Rob Portman has always believed that marriage is a sacred bond between a man and a woman,' Paduchik said."

Priorities, priorities...

  1. As usual Paul C demostrates how what we view issues are not based on sexual identity but race and home training. But her sissy ass is as much a rethugfooligan worshipper more than us Obama morons.

    Your dumb ass is a part of a party who DON'T, WON'T AND WILL NEVER support any LGTBQ issues! Unless you were a Hilliaryite and her views are basically the same as Obama's.

    YUK.....Every time I read your rabid posts they give me gas.

  2. "...We also have the choice to abstain from voting. Yeah, that's tough to do sometimes...Posted by: Cyd"

    Yeah, you'd love that wouldn't you? All gays not voting, therefore heading right back into the closet or worse, jail.

    You and Otto are paid-posters designed to soil the grounds of the civil rights movement.

    Take a hike, Agent Provocateur. You're needed over on Freepers.
