Mike Rogers, an LGBT activist and Raw Story’s managing director, appeared on MSNBC last night to speak with liberal opinion host Ed Schultz about the double standard Republicans seem to have when it comes to Rep. Anthony Weiner’s sex scandal and the scandals of their own members.
“They’re really using this simply for political purposes,” he told Schultz.
“It’s really not something that the Republican party has any right whatsoever … In terms of being a moral compass for the country, the GOP has to be way behind the Democratic party on this and we know that.”
