Outing of Gay Republicans continue........
Edited on Sun Jul-25-04 11:56 AM by Joanne98
Anti-gay Senate candidate has two gay advisers
Martinez advisor led Floridas Christian Coalition; finance director is gay

Friday, July 16, 2004

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. On a humid day in Tampa last month, John Dowless could be seen passing out cards at Landrys Seafood House to a group of about 40 of Floridas most conservative religious leaders, including members of Family First of Tampa and the Pinellas Crisis Pregnancy Center, an anti-abortion group.

Dowless arranged the lunch on behalf of Mel Martinez, the former housing secretary who is now one of eight Republican candidates trying to get his partys nomination for the U.S. Senate race this fall.

As Martinez railed against the threat of same-sex marriages to the traditional family, Dowless handed out cards to the religious leaders imploring them to pray for Mel Martinez and to get involved in his campaign.

Dowless was just doing his job. Formerly the executive director of the Christian Coalition of Florida, Dowless is now a private political consultant in Orlando.

This guy worked for the CHRISTIAN COALITION helping them use the "gay issue" to get votes. Disgusting.......

1. A gay conservative living in Orlando.
Man, perhaps that's punishment enough.
