Bush's campaign are denying responsibility for a mailing that attacked opponent John McCain for meeting with the Log Cabin Republicans, the national group for gay GOP supporters. Meanwhile, fall-out continued last week over Bush's statement that he would not meet with the Log Cabin Republicans because it would prove to be a "huge political scene." South Carolina supporters of McCain, the Arizona senator currently trailing Bush in the race for the Republican nomination, received in the mail last week anonymous copies of a Washington Times story about McCain's recent meeting with Log Cabin leaders. The Times, a conservative D.C. newspaper, described the McCain's 30-minute meeting with the group as "going after the homosexual Republican vote as no other serious presidential nomination contender has in his party in recent memory." A paper slip with the typed word, "Hmmm," was attached to the Times article sent to McCain's South Carolina supporters, said House Speaker Pro Tern Terry I laskins, McCain's state co-chairman. Reform Party presidential candidate Pat Buchanan said last week that gays are welcome to join his campaign if they 'endorse me and support our agenda.' The Greenville Republican said he talked with McCain about the meeting and "he made it clear he doesn't agree with their objectives or their lifestyle." "Why is it bad to meet with a group you don't agree with?" Haskins said. McCain's South Carolina campaign director stopped short of accusing Bush's campaign of mailing the letter. Bush said last week he would be angry if he found anyone in his campaign questioning rival McCain's temper and fitness for office as a former Vietnam prisoner of war. "1 don't think that's taking place," Bush said. "I certainly hope not." Although Bush currently has a large lead in the race, McCain said the apparent attack was M Gay Men's Chorus of Houston Dr. J.

"Six months ago, when nobody was with me, 1 could have said the moon is made of green cheese," McCain said. "I've just got to move on with my canpaign." Log Cabin leaders have .said they used the meeting to "brief" McCain on issues of concern to their members. While McCain did not announce new policy positions on these issues, Log Cabin spokesman Kevin Ivers said McCain made "his general abiding principle very clear." "He said, T have a visceral dislike for discrimination. ... 1 will work to eliminate discrimination,'" according to [vers. Still, McCain has not supported the Employment Non-Discrimination Act that would ban job discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, and said he supports the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy that bans military service by openly gay men and lesbians, Ivers Mid. At the time, Ivers said Bush had also agreed to meet with Log Cabin, but a date for the meeting had not been set. But in a Nov. 21 interview on the NBC News program "Meet the Press," Bush said he would "probably not" meet with the gay Republican group, in part because he is "someone who is a uniter, not a divider." Asked by the San Francisco Chronicle last week how the meeting would divide people, a spokesman at Bush's headquarters in Austin, Texas, said it would prompt a debate on issues Bush opposes like same-sex marriage, adoption by gays and hate crimes legislation. But Bush would take money or an endorsement from Log Cabin, spokesman Scott McClellan said when asked. "He welcomes the support of all people. [But] I can't imagine that they would want to [endorse him]," he said. "They differ on a number of issues." Log Cabin Executive Director Rich Tafel has since described Bush's decision not to meet with his group as "a dumb mistake." "Ten years ago his father met with gays in the White House. Pat Buchanan announced he's welcoming gays to support his campaign in the Reform Party, jerry l:a!well met with gays down in Lynchburg, Va. It's just not a big deal," Tafel told the New York Times in a Nov. 29 interview. "We are way beyond meetings." In the wake of the controversy over Bush, Republican candidate Steve Forbes—who has courted votes from the religious right—said he would also be willing to meet with Log Cabin, although he disagrees with many of the group's positions, the San Francisco Chronicle reported. Meanwhile, even arch social conservative Pat Buchanan—who deserted the Republican Party to seek the Reform Party presidential nomination—has said that he wants support from gay voters. "As long as they endorse me and support our agenda and help us out, they're welcome," Buchanan said after a speech Nov. 23 in Chicago. -^P Community Gospel "/4 &6wtc6. "Buitt tut ^.ot/e.
