Because I am so willing to give the benefit of the doubt to Ms. Galloway, we will operate under the belief that she had nothing to do with recruiting Sue Perez. I admit,Â her past adversarial relationship with Senator Correa and her closeness to Sue Perez do raise some questions, but I believe her, for now. I understand she may have Republican friends, all of us Democrats do. Heck I even have someÂ family(on the Latino side for God’s sake) who listen to Rush Limbaugh and all the right wing nuts. That still will be no excuse for Lorri Galloway to once again support an anti-gay, anti-labor candidate for State Senate. Therefore I would like to follow up on Dan’s post and ask when Lorri will be announcing her unwavering support for the re-election of our Democratic State Senator Lou Correa.
I know she has been touting herself as the best Democrat to ever walk the face of the Earth, and I applaud her stands on progressive issues, which is why I know she will support the candidate who is a friend to labor and other progressive causes. True, Correa may not exactly be Paul Wellstone, but he has been there with us when push comes to shove and that’s what counts. Sue Perez works for TBN, and is a conservative religious fundamentalist.
At a recent Young Democrats meeting, Lorri Galloway so passionately addressed her anger at the recent BOS decision to pull funding for Planned Parenthood. I am glad she is as angry as we all were, but that anger will be for nothing if she supports a candidate who would do the exact same thing. I have heard Lorri Galloway speak passionately for marriage equality, thumbs up in my book. But it will be all empty words if she endorses a proponent for Prop 8 over our State Senator who openly opposed it.
So Ms. Galloway, when will you be endorsing Senator Correa for his re-election? Inquiring minds would like to know.
