Kay: If You’re Gay, Vote Like It

Jonathan Kay, National Post – As in all such cases, the disclosure sent journalists rummaging through Ashburn’s voting record on issues affecting the gay and lesbian community. And, sure enough, it turns out “he has voted against every gay rights measure in the State Senate since taking office, including Recognizing Out-Of-State Same-Sex Marriages, Harvey Milk Day and Expanding Anti-Discrimination Laws.”

Yet, amazingly, Ashburn defends his hypocrisy as a reflection of the democratic imperative: “My votes reflect the wishes of the people in my district, and I have always felt that my faith and allegiance was to the people there in the district, my constituents.”
