"If I was elected God for a day," former Rep. Mark Neumann of Wisconsin told the New York Times, "homosexuality wouldn't be permitted."
He's also said he wouldn't hire a gay or lesbian person for a job because "that would mean they're promoting their agenda. The gay and lesbian lifestyle [is] unacceptable."
And now, Neumann is running for U.S. Senate, hoping to vote on the workplace rights, marriages, and families of people like you and me.
Neumann's opponent is none other than Rep. Tammy Baldwin, the champion on hate crimes legislation, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), federal employee partner benefits and so much more. If she wins she'll make history as the first openly gay senator.
