A Louisiana flip-flop

The Claremont Institute’s blog called our attention to this piece from the Times Picayune on a development that could make a difference in the Jindal-Blanco contest for Louisiana governor. It seems that Blanco, the Democratic candidate, has given assurances to gay activists that contradict statements she made earlier to the Louisiana Family Forum. Blanco stated in response to a questionnaire from the Family Forum that she opposed adoptions by gay couples. But she recently told the Louisiana League for Equality that she would veto legislation outlawing such adoptions. Blanco is now blaming a staffer who supposedly completed the survey and submitted it without her knowledge or consent. Whatever one thinks about the merits of outlawing gay adoptions, Blanco’s contradictory responses and attempted explanation raise questions about her integrity and/or competence.
