Sen. Scott Brown gave $100 to social extremist RINO candidate for State Rep., Dan Winslow.
Winslow received the endorsement of the Massachusetts GLBT lobbying group, and that’s about as extreme as one can get. Winslow is even moving to embrace “transgender rights” demands.
Brown and Winslow have been friends since college and law school, and Winslow played a major role in his Senate campaign. But this is not about friendship. It’s about principles.
We’d hoped that Brown would be conservative across the board. He was a fairly reliable pro-family vote while in the Mass. legislature (though not pro-life).
Winslow looks like a qualified candidate unless you know the back story. It was Winslow who, as Gov. Mitt Romney’s Chief Legal Counsel, advised that marriage licenses be changed in May 2004 to allow same-sex couples to “marry”. He (and his boss Romney) changed the licenses without legislative authorization to read “Party A” and “Party B” instead of “bride” and “groom”. Winslow conducted the training sessions for town clerks and Justices of the Peace, threatening any who objected on religious or principled grounds that they would be fired or fined. Winslow and Romney unconstitutionally made law. The Supreme Judicial Court had not even told the Executive branch to do anything. (And the Legislature never has changed the statute to allow same-sex marriages.)
We hope that Sen. Brown does not agree with Winslow that DOMA should be overturned, that homosexual “rights” should be extended in all realms (including the military), and that there is a case to be made for “transgender rights”.
If Sen. Brown does agree with Winslow, why doesn’t he just go ahead and give an interview to the homosexual newspaper Bay Windows? They’ve been after him for months. Why hold back?
