"I hope all the queers are thrilled to see him. I am sure there will be a couple legislative fruitloops there in the audience," the Journal reports was the message in an email sent from Brown's personal email account in response to an announcement about the event.
More from the Journal:
Brown said today he had no comment on the e-mail.
"I didn't send you one," Brown said.
When asked to confirm whether he wrote the e-mail, Brown said: "I'm not saying I did and I'm not saying I didn’t."
Brown represents a district that includes parts of Davidson and Forsyth counties, including parts of Winston-Salem and its neighboring town of Kernersville. It also happens to be the same area covered by the 5th Congressional District of North Carolina, better known to LGBT equality advocates as the seat of Rep. Virginia Foxx (R).
[UPDATE: Equality North Carolina responds -- with a Froot Loops plan:
Well, if it's fruitloops Rep. Brown wants, then that's what we'll give him! From now until Monday, October 11th, at 5pm, each donation you make to Equality NC in Rep. Brown's name will come with a box of Froot Loops cereal to be delivered to his office, complete with your personal message.
Heh. Click here to get to the site if you would like to help them out.
Thanks to Nat for the heads up!]
