Chuck Grassley

'Family' Member and U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley Pressured to Denounce Uganda 'Kill Gays' Bill

Grassley U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) is the subject of a petition by gay rights group One Iowa, asking him to denounce the bill currently pending in Uganda that would subject gays and lesbians to lifetime imprisonment or the death sentence.

Writes One Iowa: "The Family, a fundamentalist group of powerful politicians in America and abroad has ties to Uganda legislators pushing this horrific affront to human rights. Our very own Senator Grassley is a member of this so-called 'Family'."

  1. Grassley has a lesbian niece he's quite fond of (although I'm not sure he's aware she is gay) and travels with at times.

  2. Grassley recently lost control of his state party apparatus to the Religious Right, to the point I think of being denied voting delegate staus at last year's National Convention.
