Contact:Anne Martens (OR) 503-986-1502
Oregon Secretary of State Bill Bradbury, a Democrat, and California Secretary of State Bruce McPherson, a Republican, today responded to public demand for greater integrity in elections administration by signing a five-point pledge to remain neutral, independent and fair in their oversight of elections.
The Bradbury-McPherson neutrality pledge removes the threat of such political posturing with a direct, public commitment to fair and independent elections administration.
Quotes from Anne Martens:
(Chief of Communications for Bradbury)
"Face it, right-wingnuts (the "social conservatives," the bigots, the small-government-except-in-your-bedroom-or-your-uterus banshees and the god-loves-me-but-hates-you bible bashers) are, in fact, the GOP's political base."
"The Rock the Vote folks are unveiling a new t-shirt, in collaboration with French Connection, which reads, “fcuk you, I’m voting.” Hey, the Bus Project had it first. I'm glad the notion is spreading, but if you're going to get one, get the original. Vote, F*cker."
"Please don’t make me listen to Jesus rock."
"I’ve been spending some time watching the Country Music Channel in an effort to gain some insight into red America... Here’s what I’ve learned so far:
It’s very, very white. Lily white. Pasty white. Dear lord, shield your eyes or you might go blind from the glare white.
Bad highlights on women and mullets on men are not only tolerated, but encouraged.
All this reminds me that stereotypes become stereotypes because there’s a grain (or more) of truth in them..."
"I'm scared straight by the bearers of the bible and the followers of one peculiar version of God."
I know plenty of women who've had abortions, and one who underwent a less-than-professional procedure before abortion was legalized.
You know a murderer? Someone who killed their baby "before it was legal" committed murder.
