City Council candidate Steve Dicterow’s very first major endorsement came from Republican Congressman Dana Rohrbacher. Dicterow was and is very proud of it, and even hosted Rohrbacher as a featured guest at his campaign kick-off party recently.
Now Mr. Dicterow just needs to explain to the gay population of Laguna Beach why he courted the endorsement of Rohrbacher, who has a score of 0% from the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) on GLBT issues. Rohrbacher supports a constitutional amendment banning marriage equality, voted against hate crimes legislation, is full-throatedly for banning adoption of children by gay parents, and voted against the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) – to name a few of his positions. Does Dicterow share these positions?
I realize that the Boom Boom Room is now closed Steve, but Laguna Beach still has a sizable gay population. Don’t you care about us at all?
