George Alan Rekers’ Anti-Gay Agenda Earned Him Only Slightly Less Cash Than You’re Paying Obama

The anti-gay john George Alan Rekers wasn’t just paid to testify in Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum’s war on gay adoption, for which he earned $120,000. He was, Frank Rich relays, “also an expert witness in a similar court case in Arkansas in 2004. That anti-gay-adoption law was also ruled unconstitutional. (His bill there was $200,000, but he settled for $60,000.) In 1998 Rekers was hired as an expert witness by the Boy Scouts to uphold its gay ban in a case before the District of Columbia Human Rights Commission. And then there’s Rekers’s cameo in the current Proposition 8 trial in California: one of his homophobic screeds can be found in the bibliography for the ‘expert report’ by David Blankenhorn of the Institute for American Values, the star witness for the anti-same-sex-marriage forces.”

For all this talk about stimulating the economy, surely we can all agree that using taxpayer dollars to fund prejudice is a win-win for everyone!

    Well then, if a court case used as it’s basis, the medical reports of a doctor who was later shown to have never gone to medical school, those would be a need to revisit those cases, Rekers has obviously shown that he was testifying in bad faith.

    As for Rekers, it would be interesting to get a forensic accountant to find out just how much of that money was spent on male prostitutes over the years.
