|Description||In today's Seattle Times, I wrote about the backlash against Metropolitan King County Councilmember Reagan Dunn -- the GOP's presumed candidate for Attorney General -- over his support of gay marriage. |
In addition to being disinvited to some GOP dinners, Dunn now faces a conservative opponent, Everett attorney Stephen Pidgeon.
Pidgeon is known for representing Protect Marriage Washington, an anti-gay marriage group, in efforts to block the release of signatures on the unsuccessful Referendum 71 campaign to overturn the state's expanded domestic partnership law.
But if some conservative Republicans are looking for a viable alternative to Dunn, they may want to check out Pidgeon's other views.
Pidgeon has also been a figure in the widely discredited "birther" movement that peddles conspiracy theories alleging that President Barack Obama is not a natural born citizen of the U.S.
