From SoVo’s Blog. Either she was lying then (as to her support for gay rights) or she is lying now.
Perhaps Handel needs to do a bit more reading of Southern Voice to remember her own positions.
If she doesn’t care what the paper writes or says, why did she participate in a candidate forum hosted by Southern Voice and Georgia Equality, the state’s largest gay political group, when she was running for Fulton County Commission chair?
Why did she do an interview with Southern Voice back in February 2003 when she announced her candidacy for the Fulton post that she now holds, including acknowledging her gay supporters and pledging “an open door and a seat at the table” even when she disagrees on issues?
Why did her campaign, like those of her three opponents in the Fulton Commission race, submit a statement from an openly gay supporter to be published in our issue immediately before the vote, explaining why gay voters should back her?
Why did she repeat her pledge to be “fair and open” in an interview with Southern Voice immediately after her election?
