Pawlenty Stands With Author Of Pro-Slavery, Anti-Gay Pledge He Refused to Sign

The Family Research Council, National Organization for Marriage, and Susan B. Anthony List are kicking off the “Values Bus 2011 Iowa Tour” this morning with Tim Pawlenty and Rick Santorum. And as the candidates are touting their opposition to abortion and LGBT equality, they’re also rubbing shoulders with some pretty questionable characters. Here is a picture (via @daveweigel) of Palwenty standing in front of FAMiLY LEADER’s Bob Vander Plaats, author of the controversial pro-slavery, anti-gay, anti-porn, anti-Muslim pledge who finds faggot jokes really funny. Pawlenty refused to sign Vander Plaats’ pledge.
