A homophobic republican politician caught in a huge lie? Who has ever heard of such a thing? Sassy sarcasm aside, folks at the American College of Preventive Medicine are absolutely enraged that North Carolina's lead bigot, state Sen. James Forrester, has falsified his credentials as a Fellow of their organization. Details follow.
In response to a letter from equality activist Scott Rose, ACPM Executive Director Michael Barry has revealed that the homophobic lawmaker is a fraud and says Forrester has some explaining to do.
Dr. Forrester is not, and never has been, a member of ACPM (much less
a Fellow, which is our highest designation of membership). However, this is
troubling to us, too, that he's apparently claiming to be a Fellow of ACPM,
and we would like to know where Dr. Forrester is making these proclamations so
that we can approach him and demand that he cease falsely using ACPM
credentials in his campaign or wherever else he's using it. If you can point
us to some places where he's using those credentials, we'd be most
appreciative. Many thanks.
Whether these fraudulent credentials have any effect on the May 2012 ballot initiative to constitutionally ban same-sex couples from any sort of recognition in North Carolina (which Forrester spearheaded) is yet to be seen; what we do know is that, including yesterday's incredible skewering thanks to Michelangelo Signorile, Forrester is not exactly having a good week.
