GOProud co-founder Jimmy LaSalvia announces that he announced on Tuesday that he is leaving the Republican party.
In a recent blog post Jimmy LaSalvia said that he changed his voter registration to “no party”, because the Republican party had “lost its way”.
LaSalvia said that he is now “an independent conservative”, which he said: “sounds much better than ‘gay Republican'”.
I have to call shenanigans on LaSalvia’s claims that he is a conservative. Here is why:
LaSalvia supported the Libertarian In Name Only straw candidate Robert Sarvis for Governor instead of Cuccinnelli
LaSalvia’s co-founder at GOProud Chris Barron voted for Terry McAuliffe for Governor instead of Cuccinnelli
LaSalvia was “offended” because Ted Cruz prayed in public and thought Cuccinelli was comparable to David Duke.
LaSalvia’s organization appointed to Gabriel “I pledge to support Barack Obama’s agenda” Gomez to its Board of Directors
I think he left the GOP because his guy Chris Christie is becoming a less viable presidential candidate in 2016 due to his many scandals.
