Sharron Angle: I would refuse money from company that supports gay rights

Sharron Angle has taken some extreme positions, but this one is remarkable even by her standards: She said on a candidate questionnaire that she would refuse political contributions from a private company that backs equal rights for gays and extends benefits to partners of gay employees.

Angle laid out this position in a candidate questionnaire that she filled out for the Washington-based Government is not God PAC.

In question 35A of the questionnaire, Angle was asked:

Would you refuse PAC money from those who are fundamentally opposed to your views on social issues?

Angle checked the Yes box. The questionnaire then asked:

In reference to question 35A, Intel Corporation supports "equal rights for gays" and offers benefits to "partners" of homosexual employees. Would you refuse funds from this corporate PAC?

Angle again checked the Yes box.

...

Angle's position is striking. It's one thing to oppose gay marriage, or to oppose equal rights for gays. It's quite another to refuse to accept campaign contributions from a company that chooses of its own free will to support gay rights or extend benefits to partners of its own employees.

Pretty bad if a lot of people are basing their votes on 3 out of 35 questions which have to do with gay related issues.

Does she really research every donor's employee policies for gay benefits? I doubt it as most politicians are naturally inclined to take all/any donations and only return the money if somebody makes a big deal about it.

I'm just surprised to hear any politician refusing money from anyone. That's shocking!

At least she's standing up on her principles. I doubt if she would also refuse money from companies that use child labor, but hey, everyone has their priorities.

what's wrong with child labor? :unsure:

Frankly, there's not enough child labor these days! I mean, people gotta eat! I demand more child labor!

The b!tch is nuts. And a gift to Harry.

Meanwhile, Harry is doing everything he can to level the playing field.

Seriously, are these two nuts in a race to see who can reach rock bottom first? :blink:
