Yet Another Fail For Porno Pete

Just a few days ago we learned of Porno Pete’s hilariously failed attempt to stalk the performers and attendees of the Hunky Jesus contest in San Francisco.  Today we see he spent tens of dollars to create a vinyl banner to parade around outside a meeting of the Illinois GOP, which gathered this weekend to consider a motion to unseat chairman Pat Brady over his support of same-sex marriage. Brady survived this second attempt (the first was last month) without a vote even being taken. Here’s how things went down for the anti-Brady protesters at the meeting.

In Tinley Park, social conservative activists chanted “we are the party” outside the closed meeting room and banged on meeting room doors, then were later ushered into another area of the convention complex by uniformed Tinley Park police. Mark Stern, a Republican precinct committeeman from Oak Brook, said Brady has diverted the focus of the GOP and hurt its ability to move beyond minority party status. “I think Pat has brought this upon ourselves by forcing this issue,” Stern said.

The Chicago Tribune notes that Brady “made it clear that he would fight attempts to be ousted.”  This weekend’s meeting did approve a “succession strategy” for replacing him in the future.
