MIKE MANNING on Supporting Fred Karger, Openly Gay Man, For President

What surprises me is that I have yet to see anything about Fred Karger in the mainstream media. He hasn't been mentioned on TV, in magazines, or in newspapers. I know all about Herman Cain's excellent adventures, more than I care to know about, frankly. But not one word about Fred Karger...good or bad.

Fred Karger is gay and he's open about it and he's making serious bid to become President of the United States.

And I haven't heard or seen anything about it in the m/m romance community either. I don't know about anyone else, but as an openly gay man I find it interesting that someone like Fred Karger would even attempt to run for President. I may or may not vote for him. That remains to be seen. But I'd like to be educated about him so I can form a decision based on solid information given to me.

And I think he deserves just as much attention as good old Herman Cain, Bachman, or Romney.

Although, they may only be basic cable and considered to be left wing, the Daily Show has talked about him a few times. I only know that because I an a huge fan of the show: http://www.indecisionforever.com/2011/10/24/exclusive-undercision-2012-fred-karger/

Thanks Stephani. I didn't know that. I usually switch between CNN, MSNBC, and FOX. I do wish I'd hear more about him in the LGBT community. I know he's a Republican and that's part of the reason why I don't hear much. But I also think issues cross party lines and it's important to know about everyone who might be a potential candidate. I wouldn't vote for anyone just because he or she is gay, but I would like to hear more about them.
