Simon Not Welcome At Fund-Raiser

Sponsored by:

A Republican group has dropped GOP gubernatorial nominee Bill Simon from a fund-raiser with Vice President Cheney´s lesbian daughter. The Republican Unity Coalition was formed to promote ties between gays and non-homosexuals. Coalition officials say Simon is not welcome at Thursday´s fund-raiser because he had reneged on promises to support a variety of gay issues. Simon had been scheduled to speak along with Mary Cheney. Coalition officials say they made the move after Simon distanced himself from a questionnaire in which he pledged to declare a Gay Pride Day if elected, among other things. Simon said he never saw the questionnaire, which bore his signature.
