Many of Obama�s key financial supporters are Homosexual: 1 in 6 Money Bundlers are Gay
It was courage that President Obama showed when he �came out� for Gay Marriage without promising to lift a finger to make it happen.
It was all about the Gay cash!
Weasel Zippers reports President Obama�s announcement Wednesday that he supports same-sex marriage highlights the importance of the gay community to his re-election effort, which could get a boost in donations as a result.
Many of Obama�s key financial supporters are gay�including finance director Rufus Gifford and Democratic National Committee treasurer Andrew Tobias�and the campaign has regularly held fundraisers focused on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender donors.
A review of Obama�s top bundlers, who have brought in $500,000 or more for the campaign, shows that about one in six publicly identify themselves as gay. His overall list of bundlers also includes a number of gay couples who have wed in jurisdictions where same-sex marriage was legal.
�It�s a very important constituency,� said Los Angeles attorney Dana Perlman, a top Obama bundler who is helping organize a 700-person LGBT fundraiser for the president on June 6. �The community for the most part is wholeheartedly behind this man.�
