‘It’s all about buying off gay leaders by seducing them, very cheaply, so the White House can help get the money coming back in’

“But now, a cocktail party? No, that’s not business — it’s schmoozing and sucking up, and it’s all about buying off gay leaders by seducing them, very cheaply, so the White House can help get the money coming back in, since the DNC gay fundraiser for next week is collapsing. The response so far has only been about the money and it’s not nearly enough. What we need now is real action. Not these crumbs, whether it be the census inclusion or some benefits for federal employees. We need something big, and until then, the DNC fundraisers should continue to be threatened, and nobody among the gay leadership should be partying with this president.” —OutQ host Michelangelo Signorile on Thursday’s much-maligned DNC GLBT fundraiser [The Gist]
