Remember Bo French? He’s the Texas House candidate running against Rep. Charlie Geren in Tarrant County. I went to school with his wife and many of her family members. After getting an alarming fundraising email, I wrote an essay urging him to not follow (or take money from) Cathie Adams and the like.
Well, so much for that.
Following the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling legalizing marriage equality nationwide, French wrote the following:
After a commenter reminded him that, yes, the U.S. Constitution contains both the 10th Amendment protects states’ rights and the 14th Amendment guaranteeing equality and due process, I guess that was too much. French replied this way:
French was then asked “you expect to be elected with that logic?”
Well, evidently, he does:
You can’t say I didn’t try to remind him, because I did. But I guess a West Texas oilman’s money speaks more than an open and honest plea to your wife and her family’s high school classmate to not join the battle of bigotry.
Bring it, 2016.
