Podcast: Featured Guest Fred Karger, Presidential Candidate

Original Air Date:April 2, 2012

Lori & Bob Hollander, and Pastor Larry Brumfield originally had no guest scheduled and were instead going to have a factual discussion about the confidential documents recently released from the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) which describe their “strategic goal to drive a wedge between gays and blacks – two key Democratic constituencies.” At the last minute Fred Karger agreed to be our guest for the show. Karger is the person who filed the lawsuit against NOM in Maine which led to the release of these documents and thereby exposed NOM’s strategy.

Photo Fred KargerFred Karger was the first to announce his candidacy for the Republican nomination for President of the United States on March 23, 2011. Throughout his career, Karger has worked on nine presidential campaigns and served as a senior consultant on campaigns for Presidents Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush and Gerald Ford. He retired after 27 years and has since become an activist for gay rights causes, including his organization Californians Against Hate (now Rights Equal Rights) to investigate the LDS Church and the National Organization for Marriage in their campaigns against marriage equality in California and Maine.

Karger is the first openly gay presidential candidate from a major political party in American history.
