Scrutiny Spreads to ’99 Deeds Remarks
Creigh Deeds in a campaign mailer: “NO SPECIAL RIGHTS FOR GAYS”.
I don’t believe in discrimination, but I don’t believe in special rights for anyone. I have never voted to allow gay partners to receive medical insurance — or any other benefit — from the state. It’s sad that Mr. Collins has to resort to bigotry and hate-mongering.
These comments were made by then-Del. Creigh Deeds in a campaign mailer ten years ago, which from what I’m told can only mean he still believes it today. Creigh Deeds even supported bringing the Marshall-Newman Amendment to a statewide vote!
When should we expect a front-page A1 story from the Washington Post about this?
