Call it schadenfreude if you must, but I love watching a hate group self-destruct. I’ll save you the mental anguish of trying to read that entire email and share the highlights:
Money is so tight here that I have had to scale back important pro-family campaigns.
There is no chance of Presidential opposition. We need to stop the Gay Bill of Special Rights ourselves, now!
This means we are going to have to work twice as hard and spend ten times more money in order to stop the bill in Congress.
Money that your Public Advocate doesn’t have as I write this letter.
Donations to my office are not keeping up with the need.
I am in a dilemma like I’ve never been in before.
You see, my office does not receive any tax funds for its important campaigns.
I must ask you to keep the information I am about to give you confidential.
If it gets into the hands of the Homosexual Lobby, they will use it to destroy me while we are weak:
My office owes $88,129.34 to Larry and other small businessmen in Virginia.
I hope you don’t think badly of me. Some of this is now sixty days past due. It’s not a major crisis for the small businessmen or me. Not yet.
I absolutely must raise $107,372.19 in the next 25 days to pay past bills and keep programs going.
If I am not able to raise the money, I don’t know what I will do.
I don’t know how I can keep fighting.
I can’t go on fighting against the radical Homosexual Lobby if I don’t raise the money to pay the bills. And I shudder to think of what will happen if the liberals in Washington go unchecked…
I asked my friends to sign an important petition. And I am so thankful to my friends who signed their petitions.
But only 2 of every 10 people to whom I wrote responded. That was less than I hoped for.
I felt as if I were all alone.
And it hurt.
And today as I look at the bills my office owes and all of the work that is ahead of me, I feel alone again.
