Getting Rid of Gay-Basher's??

The Washington Blade recently published an article, based on an interview with Joshua Israel, president of the Virginia Partisans, describing efforts to replace two Northern Virginia Republicans. Both men -- Del. Dave Albo (R-Fairfax) and Del. Robert Marshall (R-Prince William) -- have horrible records on gay rights and seem to have earned themselves vigorous challenges.

Marshall will face Bruce Roemmelt, a retired firefighter, and Albo will face Greg Werkheiser, a lawyer and former speechwriter for top-level Democrats.

Both Albo and Marhall represent the worst and most reactionary wing of Virginia politics. Knocking off even one would be a huge win for the good guys...and for the Constitution. Marshall is known for making brilliant statements like, "Homosexuals can get married. They just have to marry someone of the opposite sex. It's a requirement of nature."

Albo, of course, being the enlightened statesman that he is, would like to lessen the punishment for having sexual intercourse with children.
