Shelley Moves Left: Supports Gay Rights

In a turnabout, Congresswoman Capito recently voted to include gays and lesbians in a hate crimes bill. Capito has an inconsistent record on gay rights. The vote is seen as a move to distance herself from the far right of the party as she enters a difficult election year. Sources close to Capito say that she is gay friendly and probably has quite a few gay friends. However, she feels pressured to publicly side with the right wing of her party most of the time on gay rights.

Real Conservative or Administration Lackey

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

-- United States Constitution, Amendment IV

Mrs. Capito, should the White House have the right to spy on Americans without a warrant? Real conservatives believe in real civil liberties. Stand up and show what you stand for.
