HRC: INVESTIGATE ‘PAY-TO-SWAY’ COLUMNIST FOR POSSIBLE LEGAL VIOLATIONS
‘The public deserves to know if there are other ‘pay-to-sway’ columnists and opinion leaders on the Bush administration payroll,’ said HRC Political Director Winnie Stachelberg.

Gallagher testified in the Senate in support of the discriminatory constitutional amendment and wrote numerous syndicated columns on these issues.
