“If we have gay marriage, our religious liberties are gone… this battle is the most important issue that we face today.” – Rep. Marilyn Musgrave (R-CO-04), at the Family Research Council conference, September 29, 2006
Geez people, I go to bed late and find you’ve given nearly $9,000 to Democrat Angie Paccione (CO-04) while I was sleeping. Don’t let me get on your bad side :-)
Seriously, that is absolutely amazing. When Joe, Rob and I discussed selecting Paccione as our next candidate we figured we could hopefully get $4,000 for her, but we didn’t think we’d match the $10k we raised for Scott Kleeb. We are now clearly going to beat that amount with Paccione. And she can use it.
As you know, her opponent is Republican Congresswoman Marilyn Musgrave. Musgrave is the the #1 religious right House candidate, the woman who created the Federal Marriage Amendment (the anti-gay constitutional amendment). She is also a self-proclaimed “pro-life activist.” There is no one more deserving of our scorn than Musgrave who is simply obsessed with legislative gay-bashing.
So thank you for turning out in force on this one. We’ve almost raised $10,000 already – let’s make it $20,000 by the end of the day.
Now, check out this YouTube video that someone created about this race. It’s fabulous.
