Obama: Fundraising with GLBT and Kevin Jennings

Barack Obama was against same sex-marriage on the campaign trail in 2008, but also said he would repeal the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). DOMA is still the law of the land, has not been repealed, but Obama’s Department of Justice refuses to enforce it, so repeal is moot today. When the Administration legitimized what the law does not, it meant one thing: time for fundraisers in the Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual and Transgender (LGBT) community. In New York, tickets for the November 30th event, with “brief presidential remarks” and a photo op with Barack, are going for $10,000 to $35,800. Yes, Kevin Jennings is on the host committee.

Jennings, the former Obama Safe Schools Czar left the administration to be the CEO of Be the Change, which works closely with AmeriCorp, an organization chock full of young students ripe for the Gay and Lesbian endoctrination Jennings has devoted his life to.  

Linked at White House 2012 – thank you!
