Gregory T. Angelo, the group’s interim executive director, said he was perplexed by other organizations’ willingness to “roll the dice” on Hagel — a man, he added, who has “at best a questionable background on gay rights, at worst a terrible background on gay rights.”
The Log Cabin Republicans is considering teaming with others who oppose Hagel’s nomination.
“There’s a pretty broad and diverse coalition of individuals on the left and on the right who are opposed to this nomination,” Angelo said.
United We Dream protesters carry a mock coffin to the office of Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Monday, July 21, 2014, to hold one of their "funeral services for the Republican Party" due to GOP positions on immigration. The immigration reform group visited several other Senate Republican offices to hold similar funeral services.
