HRC Inexplicably Favors Republican Over Democrat In Illinois Comments (0)

In a move that can only be considered appalling, the Human Rights Campaign is endorsing Sen. Mark Kirk, a Republican, over challenger Rep.Tammy Duckworth, a Democrat.

Kirk has a 78% rating for his gay-rights voting history (and that's by far the highest rating he's ever had), while Duckworth is aces with 100%.

Kirk may be not-so-terrible as compared to the rest of his party, but surely HRC knows that any Republicans with a seat denies a Democrat and empowers Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to thwart any progressive movement on any issues, including gay issues, and rewards him for his decision to stonewall President Obama's Supreme Court nominee, Merrick Garland.

It boggles the mind.

I remember being enraged with HRC for years when they endorsed Joe Lieberman.
