Tom Davis has done some pretty hypocritical stuff, but this just tops them all.
Last night at a candidate’s debate with Democrat Andrew Hurst for the 11th district of Virginia House of Rep seat, Tom Davis clearly stated that he would vote for Virginia’s hate bill.
Question: Shall Article I (the Bill of Rights) of the Constitution of Virginia be amended to state:
"That only a union between one man and one woman may be a marriage valid in or recognized by this Commonwealth and its political subdivisions.
This Commonwealth and its political subdivisions shall not create or recognize a legal status for relationships of unmarried individuals that intends to approximate the design, qualities, significance, or effects of marriage. Nor shall this Commonwealth or its political subdivisions create or recognize another union, partnership, or other legal status to which is assigned the rights, benefits, obligations, qualities, or effects of marriage."?
Yet, according to gaypatriot.net the The Virginia Log Cabin Republicans will hold a fundraiser for Tom Davis In case you don’t know, the Log Cabin Republicans are the Gay interest group of the GOP
This hypocrisy just kills me. Tom Davis seemed pissed that this question was even asked last night, wonder if he didn’t want to let this one out of the bag before the fundraiser.
The fundraiser is to be held Friday September 22nd, I urge you to contact their RSVP info firstname.lastname@example.org, and politely ask them to cancel this fundraiser.
You might want to point out that in 2003-2004 Tom Davis received a ZERO rating from the Human Rights Campaign.
Please e-mail email@example.com, and CC firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can keep track of the community outrage.
For the record, Andrew Hurst has stated unequivocally that he will vote NO on this amendment, is urging others to vote no, and has even spoken at a rally against this bill.
