Remember when Mel Martinez deemed his primary opponent Bill McCollum as the "new darling of the homosexual extremists?" Well, now he's being replaced by the new new darling of the homosexual extremists.
In 1998, LeMieux ran for a state House seat in Broward County, in a district that included the gayborhood of Wilton Manors. Naturally, he lost in superblue Broward, but he tried his darnedest.
During the campaign, he said Florida's ban of gay adoption should be lifted. He also favored domestic partnership laws as a way of extending health care and other benefits. He gave a non-answer on gay marriage, saying personally he opposed it but ultimately it should be left open to the voters.
