Gay Activist Goes After Harold Ford Jr


Gay rights activist Jon Winkleman caused a scene at a Brooklyn luncheon for New York assemblyman Vito Lopez on Friday by going after U.S. Senate hopeful Harold Ford Jr. for his flip-flopping views on gay rights.

"Antichoice, antigay, snake oil Harry go away," Winkleman chanted before being escorted out of the building by a security guard.

Ford was dubbed a "snake oil salesman" by Empire State Pride Agenda executive director Alan van Capelle. The politician, who hopes to become a U.S. senator from New York, says he's suddenly for same-sex marriage, but he twice voted for the Federal Marriage Amendment.
