Laura Douglas-Brown of the Southern Voice points our attention to Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel's rather blunt stance on gay marriage, expressed several months ago in her "bring it on" campaign video.
Surprise! The GOP gubernatorial candidate opposes the idea and will fight efforts to show respect to gay men and women who'd like to enjoy the same legal rights as straight people! Including divorce!
Actually, Handel used to agree on more than that with gay voters. In her campaign and tenure on the Fulton County Commission, she was quite open to meeting with gay groups and talking to Southern Voice.
That all changed when she ran for Secretary of State in 2006 and pandered to the far right of the GOP in a primary race that became a ridiculous contest to see who was the most anti-gay.
But despite our disappointment with Handel's flip-flop, we could at least laugh at the hyperbole of her hypocrisy.
SoVo digs into its blog archives and revisits Handel's 2006 Secretary of State race against Bill Stephens, in which one tried to outdo the other by showing how much they didn't read the newspaper.
