Just keeping track of what Republican Gabriel “not a ‘slick-talking politician‘” Gomez refuses to tell Massachusetts voters.
[Gomez campaign spokesman Will] Ritter declined to say whether Gomez would support McConnell for majority leader.
Gomez went on to state his position on related issues of abortion and contraception but he again declined to say how he would have voted on the Blunt Amendment.
He [Gomez] also declined to take a stand on the Stupak amendment, a measure that threatened health care reform and erupted into controversy in the 2009 Senate special election in Massachusetts.
The general impression I was left with is that Mr. Gomez does indeed abhor discrimination. However, he still leaves me reading the tea leaves as to whether he would translate his personal views into decisive legislative action. Not only did he refrain from speaking to the ENDA bill specifically, but he never used any of the vocabulary key to it: sexual orientation, gender identity, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender.
In short, I found his answer to be positive in tone but frustratingly vague.
Congressman Ed Markey has released his tax returns back to 2005. Why won’t you, Gabriel Gomez, release your 2005 tax return so that voters can know the details of your controversial $281,500 tax deduction?
The Gomez campaign on Thursday again rejected the Democrats’ request to release the 2005 tax return, arguing that the candidate has been transparent with his taxes, having already released returns for six years beginning in 2006. The Globe first requested Gomez’s 2005 return on Wednesday.
