Joe The Plumber Gets Bitchy On Gay Rights: I Have An Agreement With GOProud To Work For All Americans
In 2009 Samuel Werzelbacher, aka Joe The Plumber, infamously declared that he wouldn't let gay people be around his children. Having just won his Ohio GOP primary for the U.S. House, this morning he appeared on CNN where he was asked if he's evolved on gay issues. That prompted Werzelbacher to accuse the host of "gotcha" journalism and compared CNN to the gossip site TMZ. To her credit host Zoraida Sambolin continued to press Werzelbacher on his stance on gay people.
His answer: "I have spoke with Jimmy O'Salvia over at GOProud and he and I have an agreement that I'm gonna work towards all Americans, homoshexuals, straight - they want jobs. That's what it comes down to. I'm allowed to have my opinions as an American, but it seems like the left becomes very intolerant when you have an opinion other than what they state."
