Colorado State Rep's Gay son outed...by her own Campaign Manager...to prove she's anti-Gay.

Denver Post:

State Rep. Marsha Looper's campaign manager forwarded an e-mail to supporters that praised the lawmaker for voting against civil unions even though she has a gay son.

It's no secret at the state Capitol that Looper is one of at least four House Republicans with a gay child, but an unwritten courtesy has been to let the lawmaker be the one to publicly reveal that information.

...snip...

Looper, of Calhan, faces Rep. Amy Stephens, of Monument, in the June 26 primary after they were drawn into the same House district during last year's reapportionment, s parking a contentious inter-party battle over which candidate has conservative credentials.

During last year's session, when another civil unions bill was introduced, Looper appeared supportive as long as it was not gay marriage. This year, she has been adamantly opposed to civil unions.


You can't make this up...

1. She is so pro-family that she'll throw her own kid under the bus to prove it.

3. I think you're confusing her with her campaign manager.

Now, one could argue that she knew what the manager did before the fact. And that would provide plausibility that she did not really throw her son under the bus. One cannot know what really happened here, because we don't know what really went on between her and her campaign manager.

But this is highly suspect.

4. Is the Campaign Manager still working for her?

That pretty much answers the question.

2. Just to be clear, it her fault, right?

After all, being Gay is a CHOICE and if she'd been a better parent (maybe even a stay-at-home Mom!) this wouldn't have happened.
