on Wednesday With Pelosi
As a gay voter who lives in Speaker Nancy Pelosi's district, and who has been greatly disappointed with her inability (refusal?) to lift a finger on DOMA repeal or speak out forcefully against the torture of gay Iraqis or do a damn worthy thing in the past few years for the LGBT citizens in her Castro district or the nationwide community, I'd sure like to know the answer to one question from my great Gay Inc leaders hosting/supporting or donating to this fundraiser: What the eff has Pelosi done lately to advance LGBT equality at the federal level?
If I still lived in Washington, I'd be organizing a picket to take place outside the home where this fundraiser will happen on Wednesday.
It is time to close the LGBT checkbook and ATM for the Democratic Party, until such time as the party actually delivers some real legislative and presidential-driven changes and advancement for LGBT people.
Here's the invitation for the LGBT fundraiser for Pelosi and the highly unworthy Democratic Party:
DCCC Chairman Chris Van Hollen
Chairman Barney Frank
Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin
Congressman Jared Polis
