HRCC robocall in the 121st Legislative District: desperation and homophobia (October 27, 2010)

The Missouri HRCC steps in it with homophobic robocalls (October 28, 2010)

Tilley (r) on HRCC robocalls: Uh, that didn’t go very well, did it? (October 28, 2010)

Tilley (r) on HRCC robocalls: “But, but, the Democrats are mean to us…” (October 29, 2010)

In the United States Constitution:

Article. VI.

….The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.

[emphasis added]

In the Missouri Constitution:

Article I


Section 5

that no person shall, on account of his religious persuasion or belief, be rendered ineligible to any public office or trust or profit in this state

[emphasis added]

In the aftermath of the offensive robocalls presented across the state by the House republican Campaign Committee (HRCC) which were directed at Democratic Party candidates for the Missouri General Assembly no one in the old media appears to be asking Steve Tilley (r) and the HRCC how the message of the robocalls

This is an urgent alert for all Christian families….clearly does not share our Christian family values….Paid for by House Republican Campaign Committee, Inc.

…a candidate meeting someone’s definition of “Christian family values” –  coincides with those constitutional clauses.

Well? We’re waiting. [sound of crickets]
