The campaign manager for Colorado State Rep. Marsha Looper (R-El Paso) was so happy that her boss voted against civil unions that she forwarded an email to supporters praising Looper’s stance, even though the politician has a gay son. Oops.
During the House Appropriations Committee hearing on May 8, Looper amended SB 2 “to protect religious organizations and different kinds of counselors from harm for disagreeing with the civil unions provisions had it passed. (Praise God!)”
The bill died in on the House floor in May. But the email, sent by staffer Lana Fore-Warkocz, went to on add, “”God is truly to be praised for Marsha Looper because she also has a homosexual son.” Looper hasn’t kept her son’s sexuality a secret, but she certainly hasn’t advertised it in campaign literature.
