I don’t have swine flue, but Virginia Foxx is a big fat liar.  Donate now to make sure this hateful woman (who has no problem using the expression “tar baby” – video here) gets thrown out of office ASAP.  Donate HERE

 On April 29, 2009 the United States House of Representatives passed the Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes Act, no thanks to Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC).  Foxx had the temerity to stand on the House floor and proclaim that the story surrounding Matthew Shepard’s death is a hoax while Matthew Shepard’s mother looked from the gallery!

Join The Power in demonstrating that there are consequences for being a biggot and for spreading lies about LGBT people and the hate they endure. Throw her out now! Show your position by making a donation in ANY amount and by telling all your friends to do the same. When you donate through this page you send a message to Democrats, Republicans and Virginia Foxx that opposing gay rights and tolerating hate is unacceptable.

And then call Virginia Foxx through the Capitol Switchboard (so the entire Capitol will know what you’re doing) at (202) 224-3121. Tell her that decency demands she apologize to Matthew Shepard’s mother and that her hatred inspired you to make a donation to defeat her.

For Matthew. Stop the hate. Now is our time!
