AFER Dinner Host (And Bob McDonnell Donor) Paul Singer’s Gay Ties: His Married Son

We already told you about Paul Singer, the billionaire hedge funder who’s lending his name to the American Foundation For Equal Rights fundraiser that Ken Mehlman is organizing, is also a major donor to politicians who rally voters to the polls with their anti-gay propaganda. Worth noting, then: Paul has a son, Boston doctor Andrew Singer, who married his partner Corey Morris, a Harvard Medical School student, last August.

(They spoke publicly about their nuptials.)

Yep, the same guy who donated $100,000 to Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell’s campaign (aka this guy) and supports institutes with leading anti-gay proponents is also the proud father of a legally married homosexual son. That might explain his $5 million in donations to gay groups like PFLAG and NGLTF?

Is it so surprising to learn an old white guy who’s long supported Republican principles also has personal ties to the gay community? Nah.

      wait….so he donated a 100 K to a few republicans in order to gain better business outcomes (I would suppose), but he also donated 5 MILLION to pro gay causes in order to see equality for his son?
      what the fuck are you complaining about?
