McKenzie-Rouson Race Getting Dirty

Please watch this very distrubing video of Florida State Representative Darryl Rouson, District 55.  District 55 covers Sarasota, Manatee, Hillsborough and Pinellas Counties com/watch? v=QtY0EoLAmfw
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.

Rouson says he has evolved since 2006. checkout his campaign contributions. Sam Brownback for President. "Discrimination is a good thing!"

He says he's evolved -- but then, just a month ago he said he has been "constant and consistent" in his beliefs and values for 20 years.

He speak for political expediency -- saying what the audience wants to hear. Nothing more, nothing less.

Donate to his opponent if you really want to send this hate-monger a message.
