Muzzling the Public’s Business
In 2004 I threatened to publish a website listing the “sexual orientation” of everyone who works in the State House. The Maine Senate took an entire day off from doing the business of the State to craft a letter condemning little old me. I don’t have a copy of that letter.
I want it.
I’m more proud of that condemnation today than I ever have been in my life. The media and political blow back at the time provoked the biggest mistake of my political career. I apologized. Never again.
I’m seriously considering publishing that list on my Heath for Governor website. This website.
The public had a right to know then. With all the child trafficking and sexual corruption today the public doesn’t just have a right to know. We have a DUTY to know how our “public servants” choose to identify sexually.
My answer to the question, “What is your sexual orientation?” then was, “married.” It is the same today. The public doesn’t need to know anything about my sex life beyond that designation. And marriage is only between a man and woman. Everybody knows that. Most of us have been propagandized into thinking otherwise. But we still know what a marriage looks like.
And it doesn’t look like a dude breast feeding his baby.
