Santorum signs letter protecting gay, lesbian employees (???)
Santorum signs sexual orientation non-discrimination policy
by PageOneQ




After a meeting with a Pennsylvania-based activist Adrian Shanker, US Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA) has signed onto a letter affirming that his office does not discriminate in hiring on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity, PageOneQ has learned. Santorum is the 170th member of Congress to sign the statement.

In a statement issued by GenderPAC, the Gender Public Advocacy Coalition, executive director Riki Wiliams said, "We welcome Sen. Santorum's signature affirming the need for basic equality in his own hiring practices. It puts him in good company with 169 other Members of Congress who have signed this statement."

Shanker, who is enrolled in Muhlenberg College in Alletown, met with Santorum as part of GenderYOUTH, a network of more than 200 activists around the nation. GenderYOUTH is a program of GenderPAC.

1. That picture has been badly photoshoped...
...they should have isolated the elements before messing with the hues.

6. He looks like an easter egg. Or like an old television set
where you could muck around with the color setting.

4. Why should they care? They only hire and harbor incompetents.
Remember Grover (not the sesame street thingie) Norquist who said "to get it down to the size where we can drown it in the bathtub."

Seems logical they'd rather get rid of the talented and keep the duncels.

8. This is a necessary move for him...

...just as "but equal" was a necessary phrase to take onto separatism.
