Anti-Gay Candidate’s Husband Profits From Pro-Gay Lobbying

November 2, 2007 at 11:05 am 1 comment

Its this kind of craven political posturing that turns so many people off from politics. How can this Republican candidate justify her husband taking money from a pro-gay company even as she runs a campaign based on anti-gay rhetoric?

From PageOneQ:

The husband of a self-described “pro-traditional marriage” Republican candidate has made more than $500,000 by lobbying for a corporate leader in gay media programming, PageOneQ has learned.

Jill Holtzman Vogel, a candidate for State Senate in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley, launched an advertising campaign Thursday touting her position as a “strong voice for pro-family” legislation. Holtzman Vogel’s husband, Alex, is a high-profile D.C. lobbyist and a key advisor to his wife’s campaign.

While his wife runs a campaign with strong anti-gay messaging, Alex Vogel continues to serves as a lobbyist for gay-friendly Viacom, which broadcasts shows condemned by conservatives such as Queer as Folk, The L Word, TransGeneration, and the cartoon Rick & Steve: The Happiest Gay Couple In All The World.

You can see Vogel ramble on her “pro-family” views in her new campaign ad here.
