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.
