Here’s what Todd Lally has to say about his “Conservative Values” on his campaign website:
Our Declaration of Independence defined our core American values, exemplified by life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It is with this in mind that I share my conviction in support of the right to life, for we must vigorously defend these rights for those who cannot defend themselves. I am very proud to have been endorsed by Kentucky Right to Life in this run for Kentucky’s Third District Congressional seat.
Challenges to conservative values, embodied in the right to life, a traditional definition of marriage, or otherwise, have come largely from activism in the courts. As your Congressman I will not get to vote on the confirmation of judges, but I will, in every way possible, support the nominations of judges to the Supreme Court who strictly interpret the Constitution and therefore resist judicial activism.
Aside from Lally claiming to support liberty while at the same time being an anti-choice homophobe, you see anything that sticks out like a sore thumb? Maybe that bit about him first telling you that part of the problem in this country is activist judges? And then telling you he’d have no say in their confirmation? Only to follow that up with saying it doesn’t matter, that he’d support right-wing activist judges anyway?
Ignorance and hypocrisy aside, take a look at this footage of Lally claiming President Barack Obama wouldn’t/couldn’t/shouldn’t get a security clearance because he’s dealt with MoveOn and Rev. Wright:
I think it’s now quite clear why Todd Lally and Frank Simon are such great friends.
