Jewelry Company Owner is 'Mystery Donor' of Gary Bauer's Anti-Gay Super PAC: VIDEO


Mother Jones reports that a jewelry company owner named Tim Horner is funding Gary Bauer's anti-gay Super-PAC, the one behind the recent (laughably-acted) ad which claimed Obama is "forcing" gay marriage on America.

Mother Jones' Adam Serwer writes:

Incorporation papers, however, identify the director of Corporate Land Management Inc. as Tim Horner. Horner is also the president of Premier Designs Inc., a jewelry company started by his parents that touts its philanthropy on behalf of Christian causes. The address for Corporate Land Management listed in records filed with the Federal Election Commission is the same as Premier Designs'. Horner has personally given almost $50,000 to Republican candidates and causes over the years, and he's been a regular benefactor of Bauer's, according to FEC records.

In addition to the Campaign for American Values, Bauer runs a PAC called the Campaign for Working Families, to which Horner has donated $29,500 since 2004. Horner also donated $1,000 to Bauer's ill-fated run for the Republican presidential nomination in 2000. Mother Jones' calls to Premier Designs Inc. went unreturned.

  1. love the ad! especially the end where the closeted-homosexual father sits down with his never-had-an-orgasm wife, their daughter, and their we-have-gay-disney-channel-haircuts sons and have a good family discussion about how it's wrong to be gay.

    the commercial should end the next day with the parents waking up their kids for school only to find a child or two hanging by their necks in their bedrooms. because these are the people who drive their kids to suicide.

  2. Even their fake ads look fake.

  3. Great production values and we haven't seen acting like that since Tracy & Hepburn.
    Whoever financed this should have bought that 6-pack of Costco diet root beer instead. He would have gotten more satifaction out of a good belch.

  4. I can't dismiss this so easily. There are plenty of folks who will find it resonates with their fears and values.

    All it takes is enough of those folks to call their neighbors and get out to vote to give that cult Theocrat bully a good run at assuming godship here, without having to wait for the eternal place.

    And these good people can overlook that strange theology because they've been meeting such nice boys on bikes, the Saints have spent plenty of money to cover the more outrageous heresies--and Mittsy is white. So white.

  5. OK. So, statistically, which of their three children will turn out to be gay?

    Lousy ad funded by a miserable bigot for a questionable "super PAC" founded by one of the most sniveling, miserable, petty little evangelical twerps to ever live, Gary Bauer.

    I always look at Gary Bauer and I see gay-gay-gay-gay (self-loathing and self-hating--the worst kind). A major closet case if there ever was one.

  6. Gary Bauer would best avoid anything with "gay" in it. But the joke's always been on him.

    Youtube spoof to the rescue?

  7. When Gary Bauer used to run the Family Research Council years ago, I remember reading that he said that he used to do "research" by looking at gay men's skin and porn magazines. What the hell did that have to do with the problems of modern families? I wonder how long it took, after he finished fantasizing about the sex and the men he knew he would never have, for Bauer to rush off to the FRC Men's Room to take care of business.
