Stonewall Dems seek answers from Castor



The Pinellas Stonewall Democrats today sent a letter to U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor asking her to withdraw her endorsement of Gershom Faulkner for St. Petersburg City Council. Faulkner told the Stonewall Democrats in August that being gay is a "lifestyle" and a "choice." State Reps. Bill Heller and Rick Kriseman have previously pulled their endorsement, but Castor has not. (Faulkner is Castor's outreach director). Read the letter here.

UPDATE: The Florida GLBT Democratic Caucus has joined the Pinellas Stonewall Democrats in asking Castor to withdraw her endorsement. Read their letter here.
