CA District 5: If ripping out gays' souls and slicing them into tiny pieces is an Assembly qualification, vote for Andy Pugno

by Jeremy Hooper

It's not only the California courts that anti-LGBT social conservatives are hoping to sway in tomorrow's California primary. In the state's capital city, one of Proposition 8's most prominent and outspoken figureheads is vying for an Assembly seat. Oh, and of course he's doing it alongside the same single Pugnoissue-obsessed pals who tarnished the Golden State's sheen back in November of '08:

[The National Organization For Marriage] also is phoning voters to help Andy Pugno, who hope to win the Republican nomination for the Sacramento-area assembly seat being vacated by termed-out Assemblyman Roger Niello.

Pugno is one of the attorneys defending Proposition 8 in the federal court trial before U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker, but said he would not focus on the single issue of same-sex marriage if he were to win the seat.

So there are two ways of looking at this. We can either hope that Pugno wins his primary, under the belief that his staunchly anti-equality views will be seen as a liability in the post-Prop 8 general election. Or we can hope for a stop to this madness now, with voters realizing that hurting countless Sacramento residents' hearts, minds, and ring fingers is not the most prominent credit that a constituent-repping Assembly member should tout.

Either way: Please get the word out about this man and his record before this throughly eye-opening, unbelievably gay-obsessed NOM-Prop8 injustice league makes any more headway on the left coast (they're also pushing AG candidate John Eastman). We who value freedom haven't even glued back together the nice thing that these kids broke two years ago. Why foster more needless, anti-American chaos?

**MORE: None of us should ever forget the 2008 letter in which the Prop 8 side tried to bully a local anti-Prop 8 business, Abbott & Associates, into either donating an equal contribution or suffering public rebuke. A letter to which Pugno lent his name:
