This interview was done in 2006 when Mr. Rouson was a Republican. He also states, "...sometimes laws should discriminate. .."
According to the article in today's St. Petersburg Times (http://www.tampabay .com/news/ localgovernment/ article757813. ece), he has aoplogized for his remarks, but has not recanted them, or publicly changed his views.
Rep. Rouson, who has been a Democrat for only 8 months, is facing Charles McKenzie (www.McKenzie2008. com), who is a lifetime Democrat, in a tight battle in the August 26th primary.
There is no Republican running for this seat, so whoever wins the primary will be going to Talahassee.
