Facebook Co-Founder Chris Hughes Isn’t Thrilled Mark Zuckerberg Is Hosting A Chris Christie Fundraiser

As if he doesn’t have enough to worry about with his relaunch of The New Republic, Chris Hughes, the openly gay co-founder of Facebook, found out that his former colleague Mark Zuckerberg is hosting a fundraiser for Republican Governor Chris Christie.

“I, for one, have a lot of questions about Chris Christie, particularly because less than a year ago he vetoed a marriage-equality bill in the New Jersey state legislature,” Hughes, 29, said in an interview on ABC’s This Week. “There are tens of thousands of couples in New Jersey that can’t share their love and be recognized under the law because of that decision. I’m not a single-issue voter—and I think most people aren’t, either—but for me personally, it would raise serious concerns about supporting someone like him.”
