DC LOG CABIN RESPONDS TO GLAA’S CANDIDATE RATINGS
|WASHINGTON, DC – Yesterday, the Gay and Lesbian Activists Alliance (GLAA) released their rating results for the upcoming Washington, DC City Council primary elections. The results, which included perfect +10 for Jim Graham and Phil Mendelson, also included a +6 for Ward 5 candidate Harry Thomas Jr. Gay Republicans Marc Morgan and Timothy Day scored +3 and +1.5 respectively. Of the other results, the only non-incumbent to score higher than the incumbent was Vincent Gray. who was endorsed in 2006 by the GLAA.
Robert Turner, President of the DC Log Cabin Republicans made the following statement following the release of the GLAA ‘gay-supportiveness’ rating results on Wednesday. “It’s outrageous that GLAA thinks they can rate two gay men so low for “gay-supportiveness” and get away with it without anyone asking questions. This doesn’t pass the smell test. If GLAA actually put out ratings based on community activism and not party affiliation, we might have some real insight into who will stand up for LGBT rights once on the City Council.”
The DC Chapter of Log Cabin Republicans has endorsed both Marc Morgan in Ward 1 and Tim Day in Ward 5.
Log Cabin Republicans is a national organization started in 1977 that believe in low taxes, limited government, strong defense, free markets, personal responsibility, and individual liberty.
