Washington State GOP mailer claims support for LGBT rights means Senator is ‘anti-woman’

It looks like a homophobic GOP mailer is causing quite a stir in Washington State. Lurleen has the details and the offending GOP mailer over at the Blend:

Talk about dirty low down. The Washington Senate Republicans have no legitimate grounds to criticize Senator Rodney Tom (D-48, Bellevue), so they dropped a lie-infested mailer into the district too late for the traditional press to have time to react. The ad equates Tom’s support of LGBT equality with being anti-woman. This is laughable. Sen. Tom has been a solid supporter of women’s rights and reproductive freedom.

Sen. Tom was a member of the republican party until about 4 years ago, but crossed the isle because of the GOP’s unrelenting gay bashing.

And, that unrelenting gay bashing continues unabated — with very few exceptions.
