Does anybody have any news about this shindig? The Log Cabin Convention is taking place in our nation’s capital this weekend.
I have a sense turnout is way down. The only news I’ve been able to find on the web is the report that former McCain consultant Steve Schmidt gave a speech there saying he backed gay marriage.
At the San Diego convention last year, a presidential election year (when interest in politics tend to peak), turnout was down from the convention I had attended ten years previously in Dallas. The organization didn’t seem to be growing, but contracting.
With the report in February that Log Cabin got most of the funds it used for ads slamming fellow Republicans from left-wing fund-raiser Tim Gill, the ostensibly Republican organization lost any credibility among gay conservatives and within Republican circles it had gained during the tenure of immediate past president Patrick Sammon.
If you have any news from the convention, let me know and I’ll post it here.
