Gay Candidate Gets Hate E-mail From RNC

Gay Candidate Gets Hate E-mail From RNC


Iowa Republican National Committee member Steve Scheffler sent an e-mail to Fred Karger, founder of Californians Against Hate, who is considering running for president, stating he would work overtime to ensure Karger's political aspirations are aborted.

"You and the radical homosexual community want to harass supporters of REAL marriage," Scheffler wrote. "As a private citizen and knowing literally thousands of caucus goers, I will work overtime to help ensure that your political aspirations are aborted right here in Iowa."

The e-mail was triggered by a message from Californians Against Hate that outlined how Maine officials ordered the National Organization for Marriage to submit names of its donors in a recent state election.

Scheffler confirmed he wrote the e-mail and made no apologies, according to The Des Moines Register.

"Have you studied our past caucuses -- you have NO chance here in Iowa!" Scheffler wrote.
