Awareness and a Call to Action

This just arrived in my inbox from GeorgiaEquality.org,

Dear Allison,

After the disappointing vote on the defense spending bill – what we hoped could be the beginning of the process to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” an alarming message was posted on a local blog.  The website www.joemygod.blogspot.com posted a message informing readers of the DADT Cloture Vote results.  Following the blog post, a reader responded with the comment “All Faggots Must Die.”  The offensive comment appears to have come from a computer located in the office of either Sen. Johnny Isakson or Sen. Saxby Chambliss.  The Atlanta-Journal Constitution has contacted both offices looking for comment on the issue.  Georgia Equality asks that you call the office of both Sen. Johnny Isakson and Sen. Saxby Chambliss and express your concern surrounding this issue and the need for accountability and resolve.   A sample talking point, contact information for both offices, and a link to the story on AJC and The GAVoice website can be found below.

Sen. Saxby Chambliss – (770)763-9090 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting              (770)763-9090      end_of_the_skype_highlighting
Sen. Johnny Isakson – (770)661-0999 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting              (770)661-0999      end_of_the_skype_highlighting

“Hello, my name is ______ and I am calling to express my deep concern over the offensive and dangerous comment ‘All Faggot’s Must Die’ that was made in response to an online blog post. Claims have been made that the comment came from a computer in your office.  I ask you to please look into this issue and take the appropriate steps to identify the person responsible for posting this disturbing comment.  Thank you”
