Digging deeper into Onorato's LGBT voting record

When Sue of Pittsburgh Lesbian Correspondents wrote a guest post last week about PA gubernatorial candidate Dan Onorato's voting record on LGBT issues at The Pennsylvania Progressive she thought that Onorato had never actually cast a vote on LGBT issues.

But she's dug a little deeper and discovered that's not actually the case.

Turns out that Danny Boy voted against domestic partner benefits in 1999 as a City Councilman.

Moreover, in 1998 he was the sole nay vote to adding gender identity and expression to a City human relations ordinance.

You can read it all here.

NOTE: Steel City Stonewall Democrats will hold their endorsement vote this Sunday. Details here. You can join the group on Sunday -- you do not need to be gay to join; good allies are welcome -- and vote that same day (as I will for Joe Hoeffel and Joe Sestak).
