Log Cabin Republicans Statement on Senator Kerry's Comments Regarding Mary Cheney
Statement by Log Cabin Executive Director Patrick Guerriero
(Washington, DC) – "Senator Kerry could have made his point about gay and lesbian Americans without mentioning the Vice-President's daughter.
"However, this shouldn't distract us from the fact that President Bush, Karl Rove and other Republicans have been using gay and lesbian families as a political wedge issue in this campaign.
"Log Cabin Republicans have a message for both campaigns. For Senator Kerry and Senator Edwards, you do not need to talk about the Vice President's daughter in order to discuss your positions on gay and lesbian issues. For President Bush and Karl Rove, you have a moral obligation to stop using gay and lesbian families as a political wedge issue. Our country and our party deserve better."
