Because Equality North Carolina has organized a campaign to harass Mr. Brown for his e-mailed comments regarding Speaker of the House Joe Hackney's acceptance of a leadership award from the group. Said the highly Christian Mr. Brown:
"I hope all the queers are thrilled to see him. I am sure there will be a couple legislative fruitloops there in the audience."
For each donation made to Equality North Carolina in Mr. Brown's name before Oct. 11th, a box of Froot Loops will be delivered to the assemblyman's office. He'll be eating a lot of cereal, we expect.
Most commentators have focused on Mr. Brown's obvious hatred of gays. But we're more amazed at his implication about his fellow members of the General Assembly. The last Republican office holders who so obsessed on this topic mainly all turned out to be harboring their own guilty little secrets.
