Gov. Johnson pulls out of anti-LGBT Tea Party rally precisely because of its anti-LGBTness

by Jeremy Hooper

Earlier today, I told you about a Tea Party Rally to be held this weekend in Boston, at which the rabidly anti-LGBT Scott Lively, Brian Camenker, and Rep. Louis Gohmert (among others) were scheduled to speak alongside the pro-equality Libertarian candidate for President, Gary Johnson. I say they were scheduled to speak because tonight, Joe Hunter, Governor Johnson's Communications Director, sent me this statement:

"With all due respect to the organizers of the event and their right to invite anyone they wish to speak, as a proponent of gay rights and marriage equality, Governor Johnson has decided his participation would not be appropriate."

Good move, Governor.
