Meet 40 Democratic gay-bashers

The gay-bashers won the vote on the Goode amendment by only 6 votes (find entire vote count here). There is no way the Democrats couldn’t have picked up some of these votes, had they wanted to. Russ Carnahan voted with the gay-bashers? And Obey and Spratt? Those two are in leadership. Several new members who were helped by the progressive blogs also voted to gay-bash: Boyda; Space; Carney; Ellsworth; and Donnelly.

Here’s the entire list of Democratic gay-bashers. Feel free to write and call their offices and let them have it (find their contact info here). This is not why we voted for a Democratic congress.
