It Depends on What Your Definition of “Strong” Is

From the Washington Beyer, er…, Blade:

A Republican original co-sponsor of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act has come out in support of passing the measure as an amendment to major defense legislation.

Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.), one of eight House Republican co-sponsors of ENDA, said in a statement Tuesday to the Washington Blade that she’d like the bill to move forward — either as a stand-alone bill or an amendment to the fiscal year 2015 defense authorization bill.

“As a strong supporter of ENDA, I know that every day this law is not in place, LGBT individuals face the risk of being fired due to their sexual orientation or gender identity and of having no recourse against it,” Ros-Lehtinen said.

Really?

You know that every day this law is not in place, LGBT individuals face the risk of being fired due to their sexual orientation or gender identity and of having no recourse against it, eh?  Yet back in May…

Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.), an original co-sponsor of ENDA in the U.S. House, said through a spokesperson that she would not sign a discharge petition to force House leadership to move the bill to the floor.

Yeh, that’s “strong” support alright – if, by strong, one means the odor of her statement.

“Rep. Ros-Lehtinen will not be signing a discharge petition as it is a partisan political tool,” said Keith Fernandez, a Ros-Lehtinen spokesperson.

Well, I just looked up the definition of “partisan political tool,” and the illustration for it looks a lot like Ileana Ros-Lehtinen.

Interestingly, its the same illustration accompanying “two-faced.”

Harvey Dent could take lessons from Ileana Ros-Lehtinen.
