Portland Couple Uses JebBushForPresident.com To Promote Gay Issues

Monday, January 26, 2015

 

A gay Portland couple in a long-term relationship own the domain for the website JebBushForPresident.com. 

The two men, self-proclaimed Portland "high tech bears" CJ Phillips and Charlie Rainwater are using the domain -- a predictable web address for likely presidential candidate Jeb Bush's campaign website -- to advocate for LGBT rights, first reported by Towleroad. 

The site promises users "positive dialogue to drive positive change." Bush, whose brother George W. Bush and father George H.W. Bush both served terms as President, served as Governor of Florida for eight years, and is expected to announce his candidacy sometime this year. 

Bush has long been criticized for past inflammatory comments on LGBT rights, such as a 1994 Miami Herald editorial in which he said "Should sodomy be elevated to the same constitutional status as race and religion? My answer is no."   After this January's Supreme Court decision to legalize same-sex marriage in Flordia, Bush told the Miami Herald he was disappointed and that the decision ought to be left up to the states. 

"CJ and Charlie are two guys in a great relationship who are looking to inform our friends and family about some of the challenges we face being part of the LGBT community," the site reads. "This page is intended to prompt understanding, insight, and healthy dialogue in the ever changing landscape of civil rights and social justice."

The domain JebBushForPresident.net is also unavailable, but jebbushforpresident.org remains unclaimed.
