CPAC Spat Between Gay Republicans and National Organization for Marriage

In the exhibit hall at CPAC, the National Organization for Marriage booth was just two away from the booth of GOProud, a gay Republican group whose presence at CPAC caused some religious right groups to pull their co-sponsorship. Now Jimmy LaSalvia of GOProud (sporting a Draft Cheney 2012 sticker) is miffed that NOM has threatened to “Dede Scozzafava” any pro-marriage equality candidates GOProud supports.
