(Huffington Post) The Log Cabin Republicans have been important in Kevin and Don Norte’s lives. They run a blog called “BlogCabin: Our Life As Gay Republicans,” and their affiliation with the group is mentioned in the second line of their Wikipedia page. They figure they’ve been members for about a decade, with Kevin winning a “Grassroots Leadership Award” from the group in 2009. At one point, Kevin served as a California trustee, and Don was on the board of the Los Angeles chapter. A fellow member was one of the best men at their wedding.
But on Oct. 25, Kevin and Don tweeted from their joint Twitter account that they were leaving the group: “@LogCabinGOP Please accept our resignation from #LogCabin effective immediately.” The reason? The group’s endorsement of Mitt Romney.
