Monica Wehby

National Organization for Marriage is urging its supporters in Oregon to not cast a vote for US Senate. That is because the Republican candidate, Monica Wehby supports marriage equality. She is up against incumbent Democrat, Senator Jeff Merkley. Merkley is an LGBT champion. Wehby has a boatload of personal and campaign distractions.

Merkley has a considerable lead in the polls but you can bet your Manolo Blahniks that NOM will take credit for Wehby’s defeat. They will claim that they “sent a strong message to Republicans who align with elites …” According to them:

She embraced same-sex ‘marriage’ with a vengeance, even paying for a statewide television commercial featuring two gay men who had sued to overturn the votes of Oregonians in favor of the state marriage amendment.

That was the beginning of the end of Monica Wehby’s chances of winning election to the US Senate.

Now her campaign is in tatters. If you have not already sent in your ballot, I urge you refuse to vote for Monica Wehby. Just skip the race entirely and refuse to let someone who abandons principle get your support.

Wehby’s defeat will also send a powerful message to Republican leaders and the elite who wish to abandon principle and back candidates like Wehby. Not only has she abandoned the truth of marriage, she also has embraced abortion.

Bullshit. Wehby supported marriage equality in her primary race (which she obviously won).  Her campaign is a mess because personal issues have surfaced including stalking her ex-boyfriend who had to call the police and charges of plagiarism. She also refused to debate her opponent. By the way, Newt Gingrich, Mitch McConnell and Mitt Romney must be elites because they all endorsed Wehby.
