Bob Vander Plaats: New GOP Marriage Equality Group Has ‘No Core Values’

Iowa Family Leader President Bob Vander Plaats — the man who likens homosexuality to second hand smoking — dismissed “Iowa Republicans for Freedom,” a new group promoting marriage equality, as unprincipled. “If Jeff wants to be the politician who runs to where the numbers are going to be, that shows us, you know, there are just no core values,” Vander Plaats said, referring to former Republican Senator Jeff Angelo — who is heading up the group. Angelo “supported a ban on gay marriage in Iowa when he was a state senator” but has now “changed his thinking on the issue and wants to get his party to change, too.”
