Karen Handel’s womance basks in its gay bigotry

Add this share

Anti-gay sludge master Karen Handel is basking in the warm embrace of a like-minded lady friend, big haired marriage bigot Sue Everhart, who just endorsed her campaign for Georgia's open U.S. Senate seat.

The ladies sealed their womance on Oct. 14, probably over waffle fries at Chick-fil-A when Handel squealed with delight.



It had to be hard for Everhart to settle on Handel, who's locked in a GOP primary fight with a collection of conservatives touting hefty anti-gay records. After all, Everhart has a reputation to maintain as the state's GOP butt of marriage jokes across the country. She don't “get the gay marriage,” y'all.

Handel is agin it, though back before she became a statewide candidate, she did support a limited slate of LGBT issues, even attending a meeting where she sought a campaign endorsement from a gay political group. Oh those were the days.
