Fight Back Colorado: LGBT Activists Aim To Unseat Anti-Gay State Legislators
Via press release:
Today activists and donors launched Fight Back Colorado, a campaign to target legislators responsible for killing civil unions. Fight Back Colorado's one aim is to defeat state legislators who killed the civil unions bill, and 30 other bills that are also important to Coloradans. The group will engage in independent expenditures in key districts to target anti-equality legislators who would rather shut down state government than bring civil unions to a vote. "We know that the majority of Coloradans support civil unions," said Roger Sherman, treasurer for Fight Back Colorado. "This May, we all were betrayed by House Speaker Frank McNulty, Majority Leader Amy Stephens, and house leadership, who refused to let the Colorado Civil Union Act come to the floor for a vote, killing the bill, and the chance for loving and committed gay couples to be treated fairly."Join their fight.
