This falls under the category of “Gay People — Watch Your Wallet!!” I’ve discovered some troubling financial ties to another one of those national gay organizations that claim to be “non-partisan.”
Case in point: The Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund. I was under the very false impression that this was a balanced, shall we say at least, a “non-partisan” organization.
However, a simple search of the publicly available Federal Elections Commission reports show that they are nothing more than a tool for Organized Labor — their single biggest contributor.
AFSCME – $17,500
Carpenter’s Union – $5,000
National Teacher’s Association – $10,000
Service Employees International Union Committee – $2,500
Now there is nothing wrong with that. Unless you are still under the delusion that the Gay Rights Organizations in the US haven’t been co-opted by the Democratic Party and left wing radicalism. And it certainly isn’t an organization that I, as a Republican with pro-free enterprise and free market beliefs, could ever support.
There’s much more to come on this story in the next day or so… including how one prominent member of Patrick Guerriero’s hand-picked Log Cabin Board fits into the picture. Facts are a bitch.
But for now, if you support all that is great about America and its democracy and economic freedom — be very aware of where the Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund is getting a lionshare of its money.
