IS THE GOP BECOMING THE GAY OLD PARTY?

Senate Republicans failed to expel “conservative” Senator Larry Craig when he was caught propositioning an undercover policeman in an airport men’s room by tapping on his foot in an adjacent stall. Now, top members of the Grand Old Party (GOP) in the Senate and House are playing footsy with a group of so-called homosexual Republicans who favor homosexual marriage and gays in the military.
Senator John Cornyn, chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, and Representative Pete Sessions, chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, have confirmed to AIM that they will be participating in a September 22 national dinner/fundraiser in Washington, D.C. sponsored by the Log Cabin Republicans, an openly homosexual group.
These two Republicans are in charge of electing Republican Senators and House members.
A Log Cabin spin-off known as GOProud is featuring conservative commentator Ann Coulter at its “Homocon” event a few days later in New York City. The unmarried Coulter, 49, made headlines a few years ago by labeling Democrat John Edwards, later caught in an extramarital affair, a “faggot.”
