According to The Christian Family Coalition, it wasn't the phony mailers against Joe Garcia (paid for suspiciously with cash), or the scandal around self-described "Republican Bad Girl" who is now hiding out from authorities wanting to question her, and it wasn't all the investigations being conducted against Rivera by various agencies that lost him the election. No, none of this made him lose the election. According to the CFC it was because he spoke at a meeting in May - with little fanfare - to a Republican group, that happens to support Gay issues: The Log Cabin Republicans.
With faulty logic intact, the CFC said of Rivera:
"Being seen with an anti-conservative extremist hate group like Log Cabin "Republicans", at the center of so much controversy for so many years, is unwise and imprudent. David Rivera disappointed many constituents by letting himself be used by this discredited group.So, now Republican groups are HATE groups too? The Log Cabin Republicans Mission Statement: "We stand for the proposition that all of us are created equal - worthy of the same rights to freedom, liberty, and equality." Does that sound like an "anti-conservative extremist hate group?"
He felt his constituents' disappointment on Election Day."
