Kent Lambert’s state Senate career off to shaky start with tweet on homosexuals in Denver
Colorado state Senator-elect, Kent Lambert, did a great job on the General Assembly's Joint Budget Committee when he was in the House. That's why his Republican colleagues in the Senate elected the freshman senator to the JBC for the next session. Lambert's a smart, real fiscal conservative. But his career is off to a shaky start because he reportedly tweeted nonsense about Governor -elect John Hickenlooper's sympathies for homosexuals. His tweet offends many conservatives like me, Christians and Republicans as well as the Democrats who run liberal blogs around the state. With so many fiscal problems to contend with, why is Lambert creating this distraction? Why is he alienating the people who started the Colorado Democracy Alliance (CoDA) in 2004 after a few Republicans in the state legislature offended them with homophobic rants. Being homophobic is not just offensive and wrong, it's politically dumb. Ask Ken Buck. LINKS: Lambert tweeted his insult on Oct. 23. The Dems are dredging it up to put him and Senate Republicans on notice that CoDA will be after him and them in 2012. Lambert's "homosexuals in Denver" comment sparks reply from gay lawmakers, by Tim Hoover.
