Last month we noted that Star Parker had announced that she was running for Congress. A longtime right-wing activist, Parker was a regular participant at events like the Values Voter Debate and the annual FRC Values Voter Summit:
When she is not delivering fiery speeches at right-wing conference, Parker has been busy suing the White House over its efforts to rebut misinformation regarding health care reform and warning that marriage equality in Washington DC would lead to the spread of HIV and was akin to thinking “that serving up another glass of wine is the way to help a drunk” all while declaring that “it should concern every American as we watch our nation’s capital city transform officially into Sodom.”
Well, apparently Sarah Palin has decided that this is just the sort of person we need in Congress:
I’m proud to endorse Star Parker for California’s 37th Congressional District. Star has an incredible story and a passionate commitment to her community and our great nation. Rising up from being a single mom on welfare, Star worked hard to build a non-profit network that seeks to reduce poverty and create a brighter future for America by promoting free market solutions and personal responsibility. There is no doubt that she will bring a new level of enthusiasm and energy to Washington for American values, limited government, and economic growth. She’s a dynamic leader who is committed to building a more prosperous environment for the families in her district and ushering in positive change. Please join me in supporting Star and her message of hope, opportunity, and self-reliance.
