Mr. Crawford, a State Representative in Georgia, doesn't like equality. So he's gone to find a party that relates to him.

State Rep. Rick Crawford of the 16th House District said he plans to switch from Democrat to Republican following the election...

He said the tipping point for him came during the Democratic National Convention, when the party made official its support of same sex marriage.

"I am absolutely, positively opposed to same sex marriage," he said.

Lest you think that he might be missed as a vote for something, that this is a blemish on an otherwise reasonable Democratic record, Rick Crawford's votes and statements speak otherwise:
  • Yoted yes to require drug testing for welfare recipients.
  • Wants to 'Repeal and Replace' the PPACA.
  • Votes yes on the 'Immigrant Enforcement Act'
  • Yoted to limit Absentee Ballots
  • Yoted to establish an English-Only Driving Test
  • Believes the greatest threat to our nation is our growing national debt
  • Voted to sieze undocumented immigrants' vehicles for traffic violations

I smell a Republican in a donkey suit. Time to unzip, Rick, and exit, stage right. Just make sure you close the door behind you, leave us the keys, and don't expect your deposit back.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
