NEW: Cramer “Sought Support of Extreme Anti-Gay Group”

A new report from CNN finds that Congressman Kevin Cramer “sought and received the support of an anti-LGBT group that links homosexuality to pedophilia and defends conversion therapy.” The group, which has been designated as a hate group by the nonpartisan Southern Poverty Law Center, is “an active promoter” of the Pizzagate conspiracy theory and believes “adult homosexuals want to recruit and brainwash children.”

The group – whose support Cramer actively sought – is working to promote his campaign with an undisclosed online buy.

From Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee spokeswoman Courtney Rice: “Not only has Congressman Cramer defended a convicted Peeping Tom, calling him a ‘very good man,’ but he actively sought the endorsement and help of a hate group that pushes dangerous fringe theories. If voters were wondering whether Cramer would be the type of senator who represents all North Dakotans, they’ve got their answer: he won’t.”

CNN: GOP Senate nominees Kevin Cramer, Corey Stewart sought support of extreme anti-gay group
By Andrew Kaczynski
June 14, 2018

Key Points:

  • Two Republican Senate nominees sought and received the support of an anti-LGBT group that links homosexuality to pedophilia and defends conversion therapy.
  • North Dakota’s Kevin Cramer and Virginia’s Corey Stewart, who both won the Republican nomination in their respective states on Tuesday, filled out a “Senate Candidate Survey” for the group Public Advocate of the United States.
  • The survey asks eight questions about a candidate’s positions on LGBT issues, including whether a candidate would “oppose all efforts to make public restrooms and changing-rooms unsafe through so-called ‘Transgender Bathrooms’ legislation and regulations – which have the effect of encouraging and protecting pedophiles.”
  • Another question asks if the candidate agrees that public schools should be “prevented from brainwashing elementary school children with the Homosexual Agenda – such as California’s current policy speculating widely about the sexual activity of past presidents and figures?”
  • Cramer… answered yes to both questions. [He] also indicated support for overturning Supreme Court rulings legalizing same-sex marriage, requiring schools to teach there are only two genders and allowing Christian business owners to refuse to participate in same-sex weddings without fear of legal reprisal.
  • Public Advocate of the United States scores 100% any candidate who fills out the survey and answers yes to all questions. The group’s founder and chief executive, Eugene Delgaudio, said in February he believes that former President Barack Obama was a “child molester” and that “adult homosexuals want to recruit and brainwash children.” He is an active promoter of the far-right pizzagate conspiracy theory.
  • The group has been running Google ads in support of Cramer, who is currently in his third term as North Dakota’s lone member in the US House. Delgaudio told CNN in an email exchange that he would not disclose other efforts the group has made online to support Cramer.
