Dear Marriage Supporter,
We're down to the final 24 hours and all signs point to an upset of Carl DeMaio, the candidate fighting for abortion and to redefine marriage who dares to call himself a "Republican." Please make sure you refuse to support DeMaio. Either skip the race or cast a vote for Democrat Scott Peters as the candidate who will do less damage over the next two years. But whatever you do, please do NOT cast a vote for Carl DeMaio.
It seems as if every day brings a new allegation in the unfolding scandal concerning DeMaio's behavior toward male campaign staffers. These allegations of sexual misconduct are reminiscent of allegations he faced as a member of the City Council.
We have no idea whether these claims being made against him are true or not, but one thing is certain: Carl DeMaio's judgment is faulty and will lead American in the wrong direction.
As you know, Carl DeMaio has become a champion of redefining marriage, despite the votes of over 7 million Californians to preserve marriage as the union of one man and one woman. He thinks it's great that the democratic process was obliterated by unelected federal judges and arrogant state officials who refused to defend our votes for Prop 8.
Isn't it ironic that a guy who cheers when our votes for marriage were stolen now asks for our votes? Well, turn-about is fair play: he disrespected our vote for marriage and now we should refuse to give him our votes for Congress.
This is my last email to ask you to refuse to support carl DeMaio. Now it's in your hands. We've taken the extraordinary step of opposing a Republican candidate for Congress because that candidate opposes everything we believe in.
We believe that marriage is a great public good that brings men and women together and provides the ideal environment for any children born of their union to be raised. We believe that to the extent possible it's important that children experience the love of both a mother and a father. Of course sometimes this is not possible due to death or divorce, but to the extent that we can encourage intact families we should. We believe that God created marriage and that nature confirms it as a unique union that has served society well for thousands of years.
Car DeMaio believes that marriage is a political institution that can be reshaped and refashioned into something unrecognizable through the exercise of raw political power. He says marriage is solely to provide societal recognition of the emotional entanglements of adults rather than the needs of children to have a mom and a dad.
It would be bad enough if this kind of thinking came from a Democratic candidate, but DeMaio claims to be a Republican. And worse, he says he wants to reshape the Republican Party into one that abandons traditional marriage in favor of genderless marriages, and he wants to move the party toward support for abortion.
I don't want Carl DeMaio in Congress where he will have an out-sized megaphone provided by the national media to espouse his wrong-headed ideas about marriage and life. And I don't want DeMaio in a position where he is portrayed as a role model for our children.
So I am asking you to please send a message and refuse to vote for Carl DeMaio tomorrow. In fact, consider voting for the Democrat candidate, Scott Peters.
I know that Peters is just as bad as DeMaio on marriage and life. The difference is that Scott Peters won't be able to cause any damage over the next two years as a Democrat in a House of Representatives controlled by Republicans. And we can work together to defeat him in two years with a conservative candidate. But DeMaio will be able to do a great deal of damage as a Republican in a House controlled by Republicans. It will be very difficult to remove him from office in two years. Please go to www.republicansandindependentsforscottpeters.net for more information.
America is at a crossroads. So is the Republican Party. It's time to send a message to the elitists in the GOP who promote candidates like Carl DeMaio who utterly mock the values we stand for and that are the foundation of the GOP. Please, reject Carl DeMaio tomorrow.
