U.S.: Now’s a bad time to be a gay Iowa politician, due to death threats

  • Why the hate? Because gay marriage is legal in Iowa. State Sen. Matt McCoy, a Democrat from Des Moines, recently took a death threat by phone, apparently because he’s openly gay. Homosexuality in Iowa is a touchy issue at the moment due to the fact that the State Supreme Court recently legalized gay marriage in the state. We’re sure the guy behind the death threat is also behind this. source
