|Description||A political group of gay conservatives will begin airing ads against a handful of Democratic candidates on Monday, including a spot against openly gay Congressman Barney Frank of Massachusetts. |
In a statement, GOProud declares that this is "the first time ever a national gay organization is airing a television advertising campaign going after Democrats."
"Barney Frank is an absolute embarrassment," said Christopher R. Barron, Chairman of GOProud's Board of Directors. "He represents the worst kind of Washington politician."
In addition to Frank, the $50k purchase of airtime by GOProud will pay for ads against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), two progressives who pride themselves as champions of gay rights.
