good news! there is at least one principled republican in indiana: or at least there was. maybe it would be more accurate to say there is now one fewer principled republican here:
The President's support of banning gay marriage is causing a Bloomington Republican Bloomington Precinct Committeeman to quit.
Mark Brostoff says he could no longer be a Republican after President Bush announced his support last week for a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage.
Brostoff says " I think gay rights is too important of an issue personally as an openly gay person to stand by when a party I've spent many many hours and financially to support, turns around and says we're going to try to amend the constitution and put you down to a second class citizen."
that "he could no longer be a Republican" sounds like there's a chance he isn't leaving the party, but i think it was just poor word choice. check the wrtv wording for a comparison:
