Standing up, even when it's not your issue

Last year, Chuck Butcher ran for Congress - in Oregon's 2nd, and lost in the Democratic primary. He lives in Baker County, helped start the DPO's Gun Owners Caucus, and as he recently wrote on his blog "...everybody that knows me knows I'm a gun totin', drag racing left wing nail banger with a wild beard and a huge white dog."

And he's definitely a straight guy:

I'll tell you straight up, I'm heterosexual, I have no understanding of a homosexual relationship and I find the idea of me engaging in such an act utterly unappealing.

So, why is he becoming a volunteer grassroots spokesperson for Basic Rights Oregon?

Visit his blog and find out. Discuss over there.
