President Obama says he’s the gay community’s “fiercest advocate” but not this year.
According to reports confirmed by Metro Weekly, President Obama does not plan to sign an executive order before the election which would ban Federal contractors from discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity.
The White House which had endorsed the Employment Non-Discrimination Act — a bill to prohibit sexual orientation or gender identity-based workplace discrimination for most private employers, refused to comment publicly on the executive order proposal.
Metro Weekly reported back in March that in 2008, candidate-Obama said he would support a sexual orientation and gender identity nondiscrimination measure for Federal contractors if elected president.
But as with all things Obama, the LGBT community is easily thrown under the bus for political expediency. Our “fiercest advocate” is just a 145lbs. coward.
