    supporting Biggert seems to amount to just GOProud, from OpenSecrets:

    American Unity PAC was formed in June with more than $1 million in seed money and support from Paul Singer -- a hedge-fund manager known for his financial support of Republicans. Singer's donations have included $1 million to Restore Our Future, the super PAC backing GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, and $100,000 to the Club for Growth Action Fund super PAC. 
    And GOProud is mostly heterosexual and as grassroots as the Tea Party Express. Seed money man Paul Singer is heterosexual as is most of the board. They have almost zero grassroots donors, and few members.

    So it isn't surprising a "gay group" run by Republican heterosexuals doesn't have gay people's best interests at heart. Surprise!

    Supporter: "Senator, you have the vote of every thinking person!" Adlai Stevenson: "That's not enough, madam, we need a majority!"
