The National Stonewall Democrats (NSD) claims in a press release that, in an ad in the LGBT weekly The Florida Agenda, the Broward Log Cabin Republican Club of Florida attacked Democrats and President Obama using an image of the lifeless body of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens in the aftermath of the attack on the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi, Libya. (A screen capture of the ad is at www.stonewalldemocrats.org/files/LCRBrowardAd.png.)
NSD Executive Director Jerame Davis said, in part, "It is simply unimaginable to me how any political message, let alone the muddy and ludicrous message of this ad, in any way justifies disgracing the memory of a man who gave his life in service to his country. This level of depravity and moral indifference must not be allowed to enter our political discourse." NSD has called on the Log Cabin group "to retract this ad and apologize to Floridians."
