TX Gov. linked to anti-gay website run by indicted DeLay aides
Texas Governor Rick Perry Linked to Anti-Gay Website Run by Indicted DeLay Aides Jim Ellis and John Colyandro

http://www.austinchronicle.com/issues/dispatch/2005-06-...

Gov. Rick Perry's over-the-top courtship of the conservative base could turn out to be his political undoing. After drawing heat for cavorting with gay-baiting evangelists and insulting gay veterans a couple of weeks ago, Perry is now raising eyebrows over his ties to a new Texas Marriage Alliance Web site run by two indicted associates of U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay. The site (www.txmarriage.com ) features a video of Perry urging voters to support a proposal to "protect marriage from fringe groups and liberal judges." But it's the Web site's operatives John Colyandro and Jim Ellis that carry the heaviest baggage, as the Fort Worth Star-Telegram first reported on Saturday. The two are under indictment on money-laundering charges stemming from alleged illegal campaign finance activities in 2002.

2. When I first read your title, I said "Oh God, let there be a link!" but
now that I think about it, being linked to the anti-gay site would be a plus in TX!

I'm hoping he can be linked to the crooks and taken down with the rest of them!

4. Take a look at the people pictured, The Stepford Legislators
The site honks out all the usual dreck:

"If we allow gay marriage, straight people won't get married anymore...

"Marriage is a cornerstone of our civilization...

"Why not let people marry dogs or floor lamps if it makes them happy..."

All of it spoon fed by our WWJD? friends at The Heritage Foundation.


If marriage is so important, it seems as though society would benefit if more people got married. Why do they continue to miss this point.

Do they really think gay people can screw up the institution of marriage any more than straight people already have?

5. There is enough sleaze to spread around to all the pubbies in Texas and
elsewhere. Has there ever been a time when so many politicians of one political party were under so many ethical and legal clouds?

Plamegate - Rove/Libby/Novack
Abramsgate-Delay/Ney/Reed/Norquist
Delay/Colyandro/Ellis
Fristy
Cheney-Halliburton,Enron
Katrinagate
Bush potentially tied to most of above, etc.
