CHICAGO - Left-wing gay and abortion advocacy groups are gearing up for the November election. Gay activist group Equality Illinois is launching a get-out-the-vote campaign called Get Your V Card. In partnership with Chicago Votes Action Fund and Planned Parenthood, the effort seeks to exploit a new Illinois law that allows residents to register to vote on the Internet.
The program is not without bias. Equality Illinois and Planned Parenthood are liberal organizations that are considered extensions of the Democrat Party.
“LGBT equality is supported by a clear, unequivocal majority of Illinoisans, and we have to make sure voters are registered and get to the polls to defend our societal progress from attack,” said Bernard Cherkasov, CEO of Equality Illinois. “We are committed to doing everything we can through the Get Your V Card campaign to maximise the turnout of voters."
