Split Political Personality?

Leah Daughtry Defines Marriage As “One Man, One Woman”

The Democratic National Committee takes another hit today. The Washington Blade has obtained a copy of DNC Chief of Staff Leah Daughtry’s deposition in the ongoing discrimination discovery hearings.

When asked about whether she supports gay marriage, Daughtry replied that she does not. The Pentecostal minister turned politico goes on to explain that same-sex nuptials go against her personal beliefs: “I believe, as the church believes, that marriage is intended for one man and one woman.” Daughtry goes on to insist that she keeps her religious beliefs separate from her duties at the DNC: “People know that I am a reverend but it is completely separate from the work at the DNC.”

The Blade also points out that Daughtry objected to requisite gay delegates because we haven’t faced “historic discrimination at the voting booth”. Girl must not remember all those anti-gay marriage initiatives.

Meanwhile, our sources in DC tell us the DNC has asked the judge to seal all documents pertaining to the case. They plan to argue that all the attention has cost them financially. Yeah, the truth can do that sometimes…

The Blade will reportedly fight that request.

Update: DNC Spokesman Damien LaVera sent us this statement:

Once again, the plaintiffs are resorting to false and misleading statements as part of a campaign of dishonest smear tactics aimed at trying their case outside the courtroom. The truth is, the DNC has responded to the persistent leaking of materials that are not related to this case and aimed solely at damaging the reputation and privacy of individuals who are not party to the suit by asking the court to issue a limited protective preventing the public distribution of deposition and discovery materials. That is not a seal, and any suggestion otherwise is completely untrue and irresponsible.

And there you have it…
