Frank Guinta Must Denounce Rick Perry’s Offensive Remarks

Guinta and Perry Recently Dined Together in Texas
Shea-Porter Campaign: Perry’s offensive remarks have no place in New Hampshire


MANCHESTER, NH – Three weeks ago, Frank Guinta dined with Texas Governor Rick Perry in the Governor’s Austin mansion. This week, Perry doubled down on his outrageous comparison of homosexuality to alcoholism, and Mr. Guinta stood silently as Rick Perry insulted our brothers and sisters in the LGBT community.

“Frank Guinta’s friend Rick Perry compared homosexuality to alcoholism and Frank Guinta thinks that’s okay?” Patrick Carroll, Campaign Manager for Carol Shea-Porter asked. “If Mr. Guinta believes in equality, he must condemn Rick Perry’s disgusting remarks and call for an apology immediately. New Hampshire families would not tolerate this offensive comparison in their living room, and Frank Guinta should stand up for all of the people of our state.”

When asked whether he thought homosexuality was a disorder, Perry recently said, "I may have the genetic coding that I’m inclined to be an alcoholic, but I have the desire not to do that - and I look at the homosexual issue the same way.” When asked to clarify his comments, CNN reported, “Perry sticks by alcoholism and homosexuality comparison.”

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie already denounced the remark. 

As a member of Congress, Guinta received the worst score possible from the Human Rights Campaign.  

Shea-Porter helped end Don't Ask Don't Tell. She is an original cosponsor of the Employment Nondiscrimination Act (ENDA), and she signed the historic amicus brief regarding the unconstitutionality of DOMA.
