LGBTQ officials slam Hugin

By David Wildstein, July 26 2018 12:04 am

A comment Bob Hugin made as a Princeton University college student in 1976 – that if a gay man became a member of the exclusive Tiger Inn eating club he wouldn’t last long” – has caused the New Jersey LGBTQ Elected Officials Alliance to accuse the GOP U.S. Senate candidate of being homophobic.

“This kind of bullying is exactly what kept so many LGBTQ Americans in the closet, filled us with shame and fear, and even convinced far too many to take their own life.  Mr. Hugin’s own words provide for us a frightening glimpse into the true character of a candidate who professes to care about LGBTQ rights,” the group of eighteen elected officials said.

The group accused Hugin of going beyond his “ominous warning,” saying that he led a petition drive a decision made by Princeton to protect the rights of gays and lesbians.

The statement was signed by Passaic County Freeholder Bruce James, Union County Freeholder Rebecca Williams, and sixteen municipal officials, including Trenton Mayor Reed Gusciora.

  1. What these dopes don’t realize that Hugin has gone against the GOP base and has come out for so-called gay rights. Doesn’t pay to go against your base and pander to those who will NEVER support you!
