Lee Chatfield, a candidate challenging Frank Foster for Michigan’s 107th State Representative race is being questioned for campaign donations accepted from true Republican Dave Agema’s pac. Agema, a conservative who (contrary to progressives and apparently Frank Foster) believes in the sanctity of marriage, and that is between one man and one woman.
Foster, utilizing the Alinsky tactic of isolation would like to paint Chatfield in the manner that progressive liberal Republicans have tried previously with Agema himself. But there is a very good reason he would do so. A reason that most folks might not be aware. From The Petoskey News
” Foster said he and many other Republicans have disassociated themselves from Agema despite his prominent position in the party.
“Everyone is entitled to exercise freedom of speech and to donate to whoever they want, but I would not accept money from someone like Dave who I just don’t think is well-educated on the issues,” Foster said.
Chatfield said he did not seek support from Agema or his political action committee titled Top Gun Conservatives.
As a teacher and athletic director at Northern Michigan Christian Academy in Burt Lake, Chatfield said he decided to run for Foster’s seat after a series of meetings with the representative over the last year. The two disagreed on key issues, Chatfield said.
Among those is a push by Foster to change the state’s Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act to include protections against discrimination based on a person’s sexual orientation. “
Frank Foster, presumably a REPUBLICAN, is trying to drag the party into support of an activity that causes incredibly disproportionate incident rates of STD’s, and mental illness.
In promoting the change of the Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act to include those with a sexual preference as a protected class, he thumbs his nose to those in the true civil rights movement. Yet there is a difference between inherent attributes (skin color, race, gender) and those that are of a mental nature.
Foster’s disregard for civil rights struggles in order to promote a deviant lifestyle choice, as well as his previous disregard for traditional voters who elected him should be noted.
