In response to state GOP head Doyle Webb, whose acknowledged yesterday that he's described the state Democratic Party as the party of lesbians and other people not as Godly as he is, state Rep. Kathy Webb sends this via e-mail (she had trouble posting a comment to the blog):
Please note that Doyle Webb and I are not related. However, I would be happy to meet with him and share my thoughts about family values and a little background about my life. First, my parents were happily married for 68 years, and my siblings and I get along very well. My Dad is a retired United Methodist pastor. I serve on the Missions Committee at First United Methodist Church, and chair the Green Team there. Last year, I spoke from the pulpit during Lent to help raise money for hunger relief. I am privileged to serve on both the Arkansas Foodbank Network and Arkansas Hunger Relief Alliance boards. I donated two rice mix recipes to the Rice Depot, one in memory of my Mother, to help them raise money. Today, I was one of 10 legislators honored by the Arkansas Kids Count Coalition as a Legislative Champion. My parents raised me to help those who are less fortunate than I, that to whom much is given, much is expected, and to love my neighbors. I hope Mr. Webb will email me so we can visit.
That address, Mr. Webb, is firstname.lastname@example.org
