Angie Paccione is going up against one of the virulently anti-gay House members, Republican bitch extraordinaire, Marilyn Musgrave. She absolutely HATES HATES HATES gay people. And she wears her ZERO rating from the HRC as a badge of honor! And SURPRISE, SURPRISE--she also made the list of the the 13 Most Corrupt Members of Congress
Angie, on the other hand, fights FOR us. She got into a shouting match with a republican colleague who was having a press conference to 'tout' his anti-gay marriage proposal. On another occasion she got cut off in a House session when she tried to highlight the issue of gay kids in school getting verbally abused by other students.
AND the kicker is this is a Republican leaning district yet Angie still does these things--she's putting her neck on the line when it comes to glbt issues....let's reward her with some dough and boot Musgrave's homophobic ass from DC!
UPDATE as of October 6, 2006 -- The Cook Political Report has upgraded the rank of this race to LEAN REPUBLICAN from LIKELY REPUBLICAN.
