Let Fred In!

Gay Republican presidential candidate Fred Karger, whom I met at the Clinton Global Initiative and liked very much (and who is pro-choice, pro-marriage equality, pro-legalizing weed, pro-energy independence, pro-immigrant, and anti-war, and whose "fiscally conservative" economic policies are essentially the Democratic Party's current economic platform), is being denied a slot in Thursday's Fox News debate in Ames, Iowa, despite having met all the published requirements.

Of course he does not meet the unpublished requirements of being straight and totally hostile to social justice issues.

Sign the petition here to urge Fox News to let Fred Karger, who is polling as high as is Newt Gingrich, into the debate. Let Fred in!
