Donors Withhold Support

Karen Ocamb of Frontiers writes of gay donors who are withholding their support from the Democratic party, a list that now includes Beverly Hills-based philanthropist/Internet entrpreneur David Bohnett.

He told her, “For several years we have made significant investments in individual US Senate and House races, along with state level candidates who support same sex marriage and family equality. We are also eager to continue our substantial commitment to the DNC when we see tangible commitments with timelines to repeal DOMA, Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, and support marriage equality at the federal level. We must hold President Obama accountable to all of his campaign promises for change, including the repeal of DOMA and Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. We hold everyone accountable to support full LGBT equality, but more so those who, like President Obama, have made specific promises on our issues.”

Others have pulled out of a planned DNC fundraiser next week in Washington.
