Washington, D.C. – When Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett compared gay marriage to incest, he was roundly – and rightly – criticized across the Keystone State and the nation for making such an out-of-touch, disrespectful and offensive remark.
And vulnerable GOP Rep. Mike Fitzpatrick’s reaction? A full embrace of Corbett, capped off by a D.C. fundraising event for the embattled governor.
“Come election time, Mike Fitzpatrick may pretend to be a moderate, but in embracing and supporting Tom Corbett, who compared gay marriage to incest, Fitzpatrick is showing just how extreme he really is,” said Andy Stone, Communications Director for House Majority PAC. “Bucks County voters deserve a representative who will actually stand up to such offensive speech and fight for their interests, not Fitzpatrick’s reckless agenda.”
Rep. Mike Fitzpatrick is a top target of House Majority PAC.
