Ending Workplace Discrimination

Equality means equality for all. Period.


This week we released our first ad of the general election season. Please take a look.

Equality means equality for all. Period.

It is deeply unsettling that the majority of states still condone the legal firing of employees based solely on their sexual orientation or identity. This unjust practice is allowed to continue every single day despite overwhelming opposition from the American public. In fact, nearly 80% of Americans favor basic workplace protections for LGBT employees.

Despite wide-ranging support for the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), Washington remains stalled by an extreme vocal minority, a minority of which my opponent, Congressman Dold, is a part. Please make sure to watch the video and also sign our petition telling Congress to pass ENDA now. Together we can put an end to this subjective and prejudicial practice once and for all.

Margie is right on. The anonymous individual hiding behind the pseudonym of "Dold Supporter" seems to have hit the nail on the head... the Democrat Party has all but been destroyed by the fringe groups. I am a Democrat and always have been. I've actively worked phone banks and stuffed letters for Democrat candidates. But that was before the Party was turned upside down by the godless, socialist fringes. I may still be a Democrat, but there isn't a Democrat on my radar screen that will ever get my vote... including President Pinocchio!

Anyone who refers to "Democrat candidates" isn't a Democrat. That's a Republican thing.

To Mark Stein: When you say that anyone who uses the term "Democrat candidates" isn't a democrat, you're wrong. If it's a Republican "thing," so be it. I stopped using the term "Democratic" after I saw how un-democratic the Party has become, especially under President Pinocchio.

Yeah, Democrats are godless...Republicans by contrast have so much faith...they even pray for the children they molest. Now, that's faith. That's Republican Party to you: slightly nicer than the Taliban. Mindy...you just wait for the nice Republicans to deal with you and your body...after the election for right now they need your vote. Badly. http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2012/aug/27/taliban-behead-17-afghan-partygoers?CMP=twt_gu

Dold Supporter sounds like a rational tolerant and enlightened liberal. It's typical for guys like him.
