It’s estimated that in the 2006 election, Gill Action directed some $2.8 million in campaign funds to 68 pro-gay candidates in 11 states (and 56 of them won). They’re also behind some negative attack ads that have helped whittle down the support of Colorado Republican congresswoman Marilyn Musgrave, author of the first Federal Marriage Amendment. They’re being cagey about what they have in store for the 2008 election, but their tactic is to be on the offense, rather than the defense, waging battles at the state level, candidate by candidate, in order to help bolster federal support for gay issues.
“What if Marilyn
Musgrave were taken out of office when she was
running for school board or the state legislature of
Colorado?” Guerriero posits… “[Throughout the 90s] our opponents were fielding school board candidates, knocking out pro-gay candidates at the state level, building an infrastructure of grassroots people who called every time an antigay bill was promoted and [creating] an effective lobbying universe so that each statehouse you walked into, they had three or four people running around funded by the Family Research Council and their local alliances for marriage.”
Suffice it to say, marriage isn’t the only issue at stake for Gill Action, but it is certainly a defining one in identifying foes of gay equality across the country. And so they have a hit list. And they’re going to get Joe Pesci-(or Karl Rove-)merciless on some more anti-gay asses before long.
