Homo straw man appears in Indiana congressional race
Boy, this is tired.
In the one-minute radio ad paid for by Friends of Rep. John Hostettler, an announcer impersonating Clint Eastwood’s “Dirty Harry” character says a vote for challenger Brad Ellsworth would be a vote for California Democrat Nancy Pelosi as House speaker.
“Pelosi will then put in motion her radical plan to advance the homosexual agenda, led by Barney Frank, reprimanded by the House after paying for sex with a man who ran a gay brothel out of Congressman Frank’s home,” the narrator says.
Frank (D-Mass.) became the first member of Congress to voluntarily make his homosexuality public in 1987. In 1989, a gay prostitute and former companion of Frank’s named Stephen Gobie alleged Frank knew that he ran a gay prostitution ring out of the congressman’s Washington, D.C., apartment.
The House Ethics Committee rejected Gobie’s charges as untrue in 1990. They did find that Frank fixed parking tickets accumulated by Gobie, and wrote a misleading memo for him. The House issued a public reprimand to Frank for those issues.
The ad, which debuted Saturday across southwestern Indiana, also accuses Ellsworth of wanting to “give amnesty to millions of illegal aliens with Detroit liberal John Conyers, and raise taxes with New York liberal Charlie Rangel.”
Does he really want Foleygate slapped in his face?
Last year, this turd Hostettler decided to peep into heterosexual marriages as well.
U.S. Rep. John Hostettler told a gathering of clergy that divorce is as dangerous to society as gay marriage and that churches are essential to strengthening families.
“The picture of marriage is the picture of Christian salvation,” Hostettler, R-Ind., said Tuesday. “Any diminishing of that notion – whether homosexual marriage or any other degradation of marriage – is something we must fight in public policy.”
Hostettler, who spoke to an Indiana Family Institute program at Crossroads Christian Church in Evansville, also said religious faith needs to have a greater presence in public policy decisions.
