Mass. House Speaker Sal DiMasi conducted fundraiser for state's most powerful
homosexual lobbying group Thursday evening, July 27.
Mass. Gay and Lesbian Political Caucus brags that DiMasi "helped us change no's
to yes's" on re-vote for new Commission for Gay and Lesbian Youth.
Lobby's email to supporters bragged that Speaker would "celebrate how far we have come" (read it below).

I guess we know now why it only took 15 minutes to get nine reps to switch
their votes on the crucial Commission for Gay and Lesbian Youth vote -- even
after we had shown them the gory pictures of what's happening to kids in their
programs. The Speaker flexed his muscles and made them cowards, according
to what we're now hearing.
The Speaker of the Massachusetts House of Representatives, Sal DiMasi, conducted a lavish fundraising event for the most powerful homosexual
lobbying group in the state Thursday evening, July 27. DiMasi was to
"celebrate" recent pro-gay legislative victories in the House as well as "share
his views on what lies ahead," according to an email from the group.

The Massachusetts Gay and Lesbian Political Caucus (MGLPC), which leads the
statewide lobbying efforts for pro-homosexual legislation in the State House and
works with other gay groups to coordinate millions of dollars raised for
lobbying and affecting state political races, will be hosting the fundraiser
with DiMasi at the residence of a wealthy Back Bay supporter.
The MGLPC is as bad as it gets. They coordinate the lobbying aimed at elected
officials in the Legislature -- including the disinformation campaigns and
intimidation-tactics -- for the various homosexual constituencies in the
state, such as MassEquality (promoting same-sex "Marriage"), GLSEN (promoting
homosexuality among children in the public schools), BAGLY (transsexualism among
kids), the Religious Coalition for the Freedom to Marry (wacky churches for
same-sex "marriage"), Boston Youth Pride (more homosexuality for kids) and
several others. They help decide which pro-family reps will get targeted
in the primaries and direct the funding.
They specialize in stacking public hearings with activists and "experts" to
snow the legislators (unless WE'RE there to balance it out). Remember the
hearings for the Parents Notification Bill and the Bill 1641 hearings where the
gay activists and "psychologists" and lesbians with babies and even physicians
were there to testify? It doesn't happen by accident.
At the Constitutional Convention earlier this month, they were the ones who
worked with the leadership and negotiated the sham "postponement" vote.
During the previous week, the MGLPC made sure the override votes were there to overturn the
Governor's vetoes of hundreds of thousands of dollars for gay programs in the
We never thought we'd see the Speaker of the House raising money to help push
homosexuality in the schools against parents' wishes, and to defeat legislators
who don't agree with his agenda, and then bragging about it.

SUCCESS - anti-gay vetoes overridden
Gay Youth, Seniors and Domestic Violence Victims Protected
Ending an intense two days of debate, votes and re-votes, the
legislature restored over $450,000 in LGBT program funding.
Some of the votes were very close since it requires 2/3 majority
to override a veto. In fact, we lost one vote until House
Speaker Sal DiMasi helped us change NO's to YES's on the
re-vote. In the end, the legislature restored every lgbt-cut
that Romney made.
Commission on Gay & Lesbian Youth
- Departments of Education and Public Health funding for suicide
and violence prevention was restored.
- An independent Commission on Gay & Lesbian Youth is now
written into state law, no longer at the mercy of an
LGBT Aging Project funding for training aging
service providers was restored.
Gay Men's Domestic Violence Project funding and
program description were restored.
Mass Family Institute and MassResistance had combined forces to
lobby heavily for Romney's vetoes. And they almost succeeded.
Your calls and emails, combined with our lobbying and that of
our allies, and the outstanding support of House Speaker
DiMasi made the difference.
