DC LOG CABIN APPLAUDS VALIANT EFFORTS OF TIM DAY

WASHINGTON, DC – The DC Chapter of Log Cabin Republicans congratulate Tim Day for running a valiant campaign for the open Ward 5 seat vacated by disgraced former DC Councilmember Harry Thomas.  With just under fifteen percent voting, turnout was near historic lows.  Day placed fourth out of 11 candidates.

“Of course we’re not pleased with the outcome, but we live in a democracy.  Tim ran a vigorous race and was a model of integrity despite bullying and intimidation,” said President Robert Turner II.  “We congratulate Kenyan McDuffie and wish him well.  We are here to put the councilmember-elect and the rest of the City Council on notice that we will be watching!

“While we did not win this battle, we are winning the war on corruption down at the Wilson Building.  Yesterday’s election would not have taken place were in not for Tim.  We now set our eyes on the fall election where we have two outstanding candidates for Council in the Ward 7 and At-Large races,” Turner concluded.

DC Log Cabin Opposes ‘Prostitution Free Zones’ Bill

DC Log Cabin Opposes ‘Prostitution Free Zones’ Bill


WASHINGTON, DC –WASHINGTON, DC – The DC Chapter of Log Cabin Republicans issued the following statement in opposition to a bill recently introduced by Ward 7 Councilmember Yvette Alexander entitled the Prostitution Free Zone Amendment Act of 2011.

“The simple idea of a prostitution-free zone creates the illusion that there are areas within the District where prostitution is allowed in some legal fashion,” said DC Log Cabin President Robert Turner II.  “While we concur with groups such as the Gay and Lesbian Activists Alliance in calling on the D.C. Council to defeat the bill, our reasoning is much different.

“This is not a bill to curb prostitution.  If it were, it would target larger areas than ones often populated by loitering offenders.  This is an election year gimmick by a councilmember who for the last three years has proven indifferent to the needs of her constituents in Ward 7.  Prostitution is illegal in every square inch of the District.  I guess Ms. Alexander wants to make certain areas ‘super-duper illegal,’” Turner concluded.
