I mentioned in an earlier post that Mr. Foley's voting record did not give him 'cover'. Cover or no, the fact is that he voted against the anti-gay marriage amendment. Shame on me for not getting my facts straight.
Foley was considered a moderate Republican.
In 2000 he introduced legislation to expand the federal government's role in investigating and prosecuting crimes based on sexual orientation, religion, gender or ethnicity.
Foley voted against his party in 2004 and again this year to thwart a federal amendment to the Constitution that would ban same-sex marriage.
Does this get him out of hot water with gay voters?
He had to know, on some level, what he was doing.
