HomoQuotable - Chris Barron
"For the past six months, we have watched as unfair and untrue attacks have been leveled against our organization, our allies, our friends and sometimes even their families. Everyone has their breaking point and clearly in my interview with Metro Weekly I had reached mine. I shouldn’t have used the language that I did to describe Cleta Mitchell and for that I apologize." - GOProud head Chris Barron, apologizing for calling Mitchell a "bigot."
Michell is the virulently anti-gay DC-based attorney largely behind the campaign to boycott CPAC over GOProud's attendance. Earlier this week, Pam Spaulding noted that Mitchell's hatred for gay people is probably due to the fact that her husband left her for another man over 20 years ago.
