WHAT?? Surely NOT!! We shall see.
That’s the question Republican operative Gary Abernathy raised on his Republican Gazette web site. The guy doesn’t do permalinks. But here is the guts of what he reported about Hillary Clinton’s July 27 visit to West Virginia:
Originally, the Lohman Group, which is organizing Hillary’s Hardy County visit, said in an email that Hillary would help dedicate a new health facility “to be followed by a fundraiser in her honor at the Guest House at Lost River. This is a real chance to meet Senator Clinton in a small setting where you will have your picture taken with her and have a chance to talk with her.” The email had apparently been forwarded to others by the director of the West Virginia Small Business Development Center on a state email account.
According to internet searches, the Guest House at Lost River is a resort “for Gay, Lesbian, and Gay-Friendly clientele.” Craigslist, an online site specializing in property listings, says of the Guest House at Lost River, “Relax at the straight-friendly luxury gay guesthouse just 2 hours from the DC beltway.”
Hillary Clinton may be a liberal in regard to the issue of gays and lesbians, but organizers apparently realized at some point that in West Virginia holding a fundraiser at a gay bed and breakfast would not be the best message to send. An official invitation circulating on Tuesday said the site has now been changed to the South Branch Inn in Moorefield, a traditional hotel and conference center.
Hmm. Is she the type who wouldn’t let Chelsea watch “The Flintstones” because of its theme song’s line, “We’ll have a gay old time.”
‘Tis one thing to oppose gay “rights.” That’s politics.
‘Tis another to accept their money and wash your hands after you touch “one.”
By the way, what’s with using state email accounts to politic?
The Other Gazette reported Hillary’s No. 1 in raising funds in West Virginia. But that’s like being on the basketball team for Munchkinland because she’s raised a mere $28,045 from West Virginia zipcodes. After 74 years of Democratic Party control, we’re the second poorest state in the nation.
Reap what you sow, Hill.
Willie Sutton may never have said that he robs banks because that’s where the money is, but Sutton did write: “Go where the money is … and go there often.”
