Very Important Date…

“A courtroom showdown between the Democratic National Committee and its former gay outreach director, Donald Hitchcock, is likely to occur next year. Hitchcock was fired from his DNC post in 2006, shortly after his domestic partner, Paul Yandura, wrote an open letter to gay Democrats urging them to withhold donations to the party because he felt [Chairman Howard] Dean wasn’t doing enough to combat anti-gay state ballot initiatives. Hitchcock later filed a wrongful termination lawsuit against Dean and the DNC alleging, among other things, anti-gay discrimination. The DNC has denied the claims. Final efforts at mediation failed in September and a pretrial conference has been set for Jan. 5.” [NY Blade]

    As sucky as this makes the Democrats look, I’m glad it is going to court next year! Will all the Gay media even bother to report this?

    Howard Dean is the biggest fucking disgrace! He has literally destroyed the Democratic party along with the non-sensical ramblings of that CUNT Pelosi!

    One of the primary reasons I just voted for Hillary! And no, I don’t consider it a wasted vote, that would require me to vote for McCain or Obama – both of whom have effectively shat on the LGBT community.
