The Mehlman Syndrome – Republican Kirk Fordham Named Head Of The Gill Action Fund
The Gill Action Fund is an issue advocacy organization founded in 2005 by philanthropist and entrepreneur Tim Gill to provide resources to individuals and organizations on both the Democratic and Republican side of the aisle working to advance equality for LGBT people through the legislative, political, and electoral process..
Tim Gill today has announced that he has named Kirk Fordham, a gay Republican the new head of his Action Fund,” who the Denver Post reports first political job was working for then-U.S. Rep. Jim Imhofe, a conservative Oklahoman
Many LGBT “advocates” and even the The Victory Fund is praising the choice saying: ”Kirk practices a bi-partisan approach to problem-solving that has earned him the respect of many friends on both sides of the aisle.
But here’s the problem. What they DON’T mention is that Kirk was Chief of Staff for the anti-gay closet case Mark Foley and hateful Tom Reynolds or that Kirk was directly involved in an effort to cover up Foley’s instant messages and contacts with 16 year old pages. It seems we are to simply forget that Kirk’s Washington career took place during the most anti-lgbt administration years and he was a Republican first and a gay man second pocketing money and furthering his GOP career upon the backs of the LGBT community
