Scott Brown Naked Cosmo Whore

Senator Scott (Cosmo) Brown who will be receiving an award tonight at the 2011 Spirit of Lincoln Awards Dinner, hosted by the Log Cabin Republicans released the text of the speech he will deliver tonight after his extreme anti-gay voting record has been brought up.

Browns defense on his voting record?.  I voted for the DADT Repeal didn’t I?

clear pixelAfter I won, I pledged to keep an open mind on every issue, including the military’s `don’t ask, don’t tell’ policy. From the start, I made clear that I wanted to review the findings of the Pentagon report to ensure that a change in policy would not negatively affect in any way our troops currently serving around the world.  After I reviewed the Pentagon report, spoke extensively to active and retired military service members, the Joint Chiefs, and discussed the matter privately with then-Defense Secretary Gates and many others, I accepted the findings of the report. I supported repeal based on the secretary’s recommendations that it will be implemented when the battle effectiveness of the forces is assured and proper preparations have been completed.”

But Massachusetts Democratic Party Chairman John Walsh puts Brown’s anti-gay voting record out on the table.

When he was in the state Legislature, he voted three times for a constitutional amendment to ban equal marriage and opposed funds for the commonwealth’s commission on gay and lesbian youth.”As to Brown ultimately voting for the repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell,” Walsh said: “Scott Brown only stepped forward to do the right thing after it was clear that the repeal would pass without his vote. That’s not leadership by any definition, and it shows Scott Brown is only willing to vote the interests of the LGBT community in Massachusetts when its in his best political interest.”

Scott Brown also refused to make an “It Get’s Better” video to gay teens who might be otherwise contemplating suicide.

Massachusetts Democratic Party will hold a conference at 2 p.m. today to “officially” discuss Brown’s gay rights record.
