Original Title: TAKE ACTION: WRITE THIS GAY MAN OR CALL HIM NOW — TELL HIM TO STOP SUPPORTING THE DESTRUCTION OF OUR RIGHTS
Who knew that letting gay and lesbian partners visit each other in the hospital would incur the veto pen of a self-described moderate, the Governor of Maryland, Bob Ehrlich?
Now, you’ll hear some bull about how bad the bill was that got it to his desk…You’ll hear some garbage about how he will introduce a bill next year…. Funny how that happens when reporters start asking “Who are the closet cases down there in Annapolis assisting this?”
Well you know what?….If Bob Ehrlich had a plan to make this happen, then why didn’t he send his gay chief of staff over to the Capitol to say, “We have no problem allowing gay couples to visit each other in the hospital and this is how we would be comfortable doing it?”
But, Nooooooooooooooo….. These men sat silently as the bill moved through the system…..and then they had the audacity to try to spin this in some crazy Foxnews-lLike line about how the governor was doing this because he really thinks gay people can be treated better. Well, Bob Ehrlich…you were elected to LEAD. Why don’t you try it some time? These elected officials are so busy FOLLOWING like lap dogs to the radical right that they never pay attention to LEADING.
Now, as far as Mr. Ehrlich’s Chief of Staff goes...please pick up the phone and call Steve Kreseski today. Tell him how you feel about him as a gay man working for a man that would deny the rights of gay men and lesbians to visit each other in the hospital. Ask them what they mean by “family values” and “government out of personal lives?” Ask how this is “moderate?”
Over the next days, I will be out and about meeting with my inside leakers in Ehrlich’s administration. From that point I’ll be sure to give you lists of these people and ways to contact them. These are our enemies from within the Ehrlich Administration. Call this man’s office and ask him to resign in disgust over the governor’s veto. Or email him directly! His email is on a public website…I love that!

WARNING THIS MAN WILL
WORK FOR YOUR ENEMY
Do not engage this man at the bars he goes to in Dupont Circle! Do not offer to socialize with this man as he serves the master who would not even recognize his own relationships?
Shame on you Mr. Kreseski. Shame on ANY gay man or woman in Maryland who calls you a “supporter” or “friend.” How you can look in the mirror and be proud to serve a man that has worked so hard against your own community is beyond me. You should resign your post immediately and on behalf of every gay man and lesbian in the state!
The question for you Mr. Kreseki is this: Will you stand up like a man for your community or will you bend over and keep on taking it like a man from Bob Ehrlich?
