WISCONSIN: GOProud Backs Anti-Gay Senate Candidate Tommy Thompson
Last week the campaign office of 2008 GOP presidential candidate Tommy Thompson emailed and tweeted out messages mocking Rep. Tammy Baldwin's "heartland values" for dancing at a 2010 gay pride event. After an avalanche of complaints, Thompson's campaign manager Brian Nemoir locked his Twitter account and claimed his email was personal, not official, even though it came from his official Thompson campaign email address.
None of that matters to GOProud, who plainly supports Thompson because he's running against Baldwin, who would be the first-ever openly gay member of the U.S. Senate.
RELATED: During a 2008 GOP presidential debate Thompson declared that it should be legal for businesses to fire employees for being gay. He backpedaled from that the next day, claiming that he'd misunderstood the question because he needed to use the restroom. Seriously. Thompson opposes same-sex marriage and supports DOMA.
