I admit I was taken aback by today’s piece in Politico proclaiming “Gay Donors Fuel Obama’s 2012 Campaign.”
First, because no member of the gay community I know plans to donate to Obama’s reelection effort and second, because Politico inaccurately claims Obama’s Dept of Justice “refuses to defend the Defense of Marriage Act.”
The New York Times’ Julia Preston had a piece on Sunday discussing two cases in which deportations involving same-sex couples had been suspended but cautioned that Obama’s Justice Department will continue to enforce DOMA.
Here is the exact quote from Tracy Schmaler, a spokeswoman for AG Eric Holder:
“As we have made clear, we will continue to enforce DOMA.”
As I have made clear on this Blog, I have no intention of donating to, or voting for, President Barack Obama in 2012.
