Report: Nation's most discriminatory groups are strategizing how to keep GOP a thoroughly anti-LGBT party

by Jeremy Hooper

Politico is reporting on a swanky conference that some of American's most pro-discrimination organizations recently held at a DC area Ritz Carlton, in hopes of swaying the 2014 elections with their anti-equality cash. A snip:

Plans in the works range from aggressive super PAC spending in primaries against Republicans deemed squishy on social issues, to holding a donor conference in Normandy, France, tied to the 70th anniversary of the D-Day invasion.
The roughly 25 socially conservative groups represented at the Ritz — including [the American Principles Project], as well as Gary Bauer’s American Values outfit, the James Dobson-founded Focus on the Family, Ralph Reed’s Faith and Freedom Coalition, Americans United for Life, the Family Research Council and the National Organization for Marriage — combined to pull in at least $280 million in 2011 and 2012, according to publicly available tax and campaign filings. While that’s hardly chump change, a majority of it went to groups focused on providing services and “issue education” to like-minded conservatives — including Focus on the Family, which raised $166 million — rather than to more overtly political activities.
