Pelosi Lashes Out At Gay Republicans: ‘They’ve Chosen A Party That Supports Their Income,’ But ‘Denigrates Them’

Nancy Pelosi lashed out against gay Republicans during an interview in the February issue of the Advocate. “They’ve chosen a party that supports their income — a party that denigrates them and treats them with disrespect,” Pelosi told reporter Andrew Harmon. The former House speaker is “pushing the DNC to help fund the fight against anti-marriage equality ballot measures in Minnesota and North Carolina as well as a campaign in Maine that aims to overturn a 2009 ballot measure that rescinded marriage rights for same-sex couples in the state.” “There are more ways to get your voice heard than just speaking…. But I hope the president would just say he supports equality in marriage,” Pelosi said.
