Gay Obama Backer Resigns After Clinton Scandal Comments

There’s more trouble in Senator Barack Obama‘s campaign. Just days after Samantha Power’s ‘monster’ resignation, LGBT Council member Maxim Thorne has stepped down after sending an email blasting Hillary Clinton‘s 3am rhetoric and revisiting some past scandals:

At 3am, Hillary said she and Bill were in bed and she knows of all the calls a President gets at different times of the day and night. Really? So much involvement – so much togetherness. Where was she when Monica was having sex with Bill?

When Bin Laden was building Al Qaeda, Bill and she were fighting impeachment, fighting Paula Jones, fighting Katherine Wiley.

Please, we are going down a nasty road with a nasty, secretive and proven lying Clinton.

Politico reports that Obama spokesman Tommy Vietor distanced the candidate from Thorne, saying, “These comments have no place in this campaign.” And now neither does Thorne.

Read the entire email, after the jump. Oh, and preemptive [sic].

Hillary Clinton is a disaster for the democratic party. Now she prefers McCain to Obama. Now we know it was SHE who told the Canadian government that her railings against NAFTA were political posturing. It was not Barack’s campaign!

We cannot tolerate her lies and stolen election.

Time for all of us democratics to wake up to this disgusting turn. As democratics this should affirm the end of her campaign.

At 3am, Hillary said she and Bill were in bed and she knows of all the calls a President gets at different times of the day and night. Really? So much involvement – so much togetherness. Where was she when Monica was having sex with Bill? 35 years of experience? When he was intimidating Katherine Wiley and Paula Jones? Where was the judgment on the cattle futures and white water. Do we forget Mark and Denise Rich? This was an impeached President who lost his licence to practice law. He committed perjury. They settled with Paula Jones for the full amount of her lawsuit. I haven’t forgotten and none of us should.

I remember the scandal when the Clintons’ bags were searched when they left the White House and they had to return historic artifacts and gifts.

When Bin Laden was building Al Qaeda, Bill and she were fighting impeachment, fighting Paula Jones, fighting Katherine Wiley.

Please, we are going down a nasty road with a nasty, secretive and proven lying Clinton. We should all want to see her tax returns, I want to see her White House emails. Let really send this candidate what she deserves: the spotlight on her vetting. She says she’s been vetted. Partly true and it’s not pretty what came out.

What still has to be vetted are her tax returns, her White House performance (we already know her disasterous failure on healthcare), her WH emails, the donations to the Clinton Foundation and library etc.

Time to moveon again. Obama is the only credible candidate who can move on beyond this continuing nasty dynasty of Clinton and Bushes.
