Wisconsin: Anti-gay U.S. Senate candidate takes aim at Baldwin

I guess this poor dude doesn’t know what’s about to hit him. Go after Tammy Baldwin, the open lesbian Congresswoman from Wisconsin and there will be a lot of “feedback” from people who don’t tolerate bigoted pols like failed statewide Mark Neumann, who has nothing nice to say about the LGBT community. (

Mark Neumann, a former Congressman who previously failed in statewide bids for the U.S. Senate and Wisconsin governor, announced today he’s once again running to represent the state in the U.S. Senate – this time to replace outgoing Sen. Herb Kohl.

As a staunch social conservative, Neumann’s record on LGBT issues contrasts sharply with Baldwin’s. In 1996, Neumann said, “If I were elected God for a day, homosexuality wouldn’t be permitted.” Years later he clarified the remark, explaining he would not want God’s job.

Neumann has also suggested he wouldn’t hire an openly gay staffer. ”If somebody walks in to me and says, ‘I’m a gay person, I want a job in your office,’ I would say that’s inappropriate, and they wouldn’t be hired because that would mean they are promoting their agenda,” Neumann said in an address to the Christian Coalition. ”The gay and lesbian lifestyle (is) unacceptable, lest there be any question about that.”

You can visit his Facebook page to let him politely know why in 2011, this kind of nonsense won’t fly.
