Contribute Now to AMERICAblog supports Steve Pougnet

by John Aravosis and Joe Sudbay


Steve Pougnet is running for Congress in California's 45th Congressional District against incumbent Mary Bono. Steve, who is the Mayor of Palm Springs, would be the first gay married father in Congress. He'd be the only member subject to DOMA. Steve got married in 2008 when marriage was legal in his home state. He and his husband, Christopher, have two children.

Bono has served for 12 years, but has accomplished little. Her record on LGBT issues is spotty at best. Despite representing Palm Springs, Bono is not a reliable vote. Never has been. Never will be. That's just wrong.

Steve will be an excellent advocate for his district. And, he'll be an important voice for LGBT equality. Barack Obama won the 45th CD. Steve Pougnet can, too.
