Schwarzenegger Hires Anti-Gay Lobbyist To Shore Up Conservative Support
All who are surprised, raise your hands.

(San Francisco, California) California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has hired a former lobbyist for the Traditional Values Coalition to help sell his re-election bid to conservatives.

Ben Lopez was regularly seen in Sacramento promoting Traditional Values' opposition to a variety of LGBT issues. Most recently he lobbied members of the Assembly to oppose a bill that would have mandated the teaching of gay history in state schools. He also helped the organization in a proposed constitutional amendment that would ban same-sex marriage.

2. I agree.
I hope his fans remember that, AND that "Arnold" was the one who settled for pennies on the dollar with the energy companies shortly after he was PUSHED into office.

3. Approval Ratings
SurveyUSA says his approval rating is at 40%, disapproval at 57%. I seriously hope he's voted out.
