Chris Hughes, a co-founder of Facebook along with Mark Zuckerberg, is voicing his concerns over Zuckerberg's support of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.
Zuckerberg is hosting a Feb. 13 fundraiser for Christie at his home in Palo Alto, California.
Christie's widely acknowledged for his capable handling of the Hurricane Sandy crisis in the state, but he's also received a lot of negative attention within the LGBT community based on his veto of same-sex marriage.
See what the openly gay Hughes has to say about Zuckerberg and Christie's growing closeness after the jump!
"Chris Hughes, a Facebook co-founder as well as publisher and editor-in-chief of The New Republic, chided Christie's stance on gay marriage less than a week after the governor said he would be attending a Feb. 13 fundraiser hosted by Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan at the couple's home in Palo Alto, Calif.
Hughes, 29, married his husband last June and said he found Christie's gay marriage stance 'just really personally frustrating,' in the report where he also discussed his magazine's redesign launch and a recent interview with President Obama.
'I, for one, have a lot of questions about Chris Christie, particularly because less than a year ago he vetoed a marriage equality bill in the New Jersey state legislature,' he said. Christie, a Republican,conditionally vetoed the gay marriage bill last February, saying he'd only agree to a measure strengthening the state's civil union law.
'I mean, there are tens of thousands of couples in New Jersey that can't share their love and be recognized under that law because of that decision,' Hughes added. 'I'm not a single issue voter, and I think most people aren't either, but for me personally, it would raise serious concerns about supporting someone like him.'"
What do you think of Hughes' concerns, Instincters? Should he take issue with Mark Zuckerberg getting buddy-buddy with Gov. Christie?
