Log Cabin Republican President Steps Down

The oft-maligned Patrick Guerriero, who has served as the gay Republican group’s president for four years, is leaving his position to become the first-ever Executive Director of the Gill Action Fund, “a new organization that advocates for LGBT equality…created by philanthropist and software entrepreneur Tim Gill.”

As much as I don’t understand gay Republicans, especially in the current political climate, I respect that Guerriero was one of the unfortunately few voices in the GOP that argued against the Federal Marriage Amendment. And that’s about all the nice things I have to say about him. I hope in his new role he finds a way to advocate for the LGBT community without simultaneously supporting politicians who seek to limit their rights…not to mention the rights of a lot of other Americans.
