Zephyr Teachout on Civil Rights
Meanwhile, two other local clubs have already endorsed Teachout--Coalition for a District Alternative, the leading East Village political club, and the Jim Owles Liberal Democratic Club, a gay organization. "At Gay Pride, she was very well received," [one Teachout staffer] added. "She was slapping five and taking pictures with people the whole route."
"While we recognize the governor's role in achieving marriage equality, we are not a single-issue organization," a [progressive Democratic club member] said. "We expect a sizable portion of the LGBT establishment and political organizations will endorse Cuomo. We believe, however, that the community is to the left of these organizations."
The Christian Coalition Voter Guide inferred whether candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'Make sexual preference a protected minority status under civil rights laws' The Christian Coalition notes, "You can help make sure that voters have the facts BEFORE they cast their votes. We have surveyed candidates in the most competitive congressional races on the issues that are important to conservatives."
