Florida paid Rekers $60,900 in 2007 and $59,793 in 2009 for his testimony in the case of Frank Gill, a gay foster parent seeking to adopt two young brothers. Florida is the only state that bans all gay people from adopting.


He was against it, now for it, it seems that he wants some of that teabag money. You would think that Crist NOT losing his career by leaving the GOp would tell them that Florida is getting SCARED of our hyper right-wing GOP!

Arizona Law

The ACLU and several other groups filed suit in Arizona today. Is McCollum also going to support the Oklahoma abortion ban? Why not make yourself totally unelectable, Bill?
