Huckabee Endorses Anti-Gay Extremist For Senate

Today, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee endorsed the rabidly anti-gay Gary Glenn for U.S. Senate. Glenn is head of the Michigan chapter of the American Family Association, which the Southern Poverty Law Center has identified as an anti-gay hate group. As Brian Tashman at Right Wing Watch documents, Glenn has an extensive record of homophobia, including leading the campaign to ban same-sex marriage in Michigan, fighting the passage of the federal hate crimes bill, and calling for the criminalization of homosexuality. Huckabee has previously called Glenn a “very special friend,” adding, “if we had leaders like Gary Glenn across America, our work wouldn’t be so hard.”
