Danita Kilcullen, the founder of a Florida Tea Party group, accused the Florida Republican party of being taken over by "gay thugs."
In an email written earlier in November and obtained by the Florida Sun-Sentinel, Kilcullen argued that the Log Cabin Republicans, a pro-same-sex GOP group, has "all but taken over" the Broward Republican Executive Committee. Kilcullen called the Log Cabin Republicans a "thug organization" motivated by their own "special interests."
In the email Kilcullen also warns that she would be "damned" if she was forced to hire someone with tattoos, piercings, or a man in a dress, a reference to the Senate's passage of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA).

“We must fight with all we have... We must put pressure on the House like has never been seen before. I'll be damned if I will ever be forced to hire someone with orange hair, body/neck/face covered with tattoos, multiple piercings, or a man in a dress... or for that matter, a demonstrative effeminate male or purposeful butch-looking female. The Log Cabins are the same lobbyist organization that has all but taken over BREC; and besides that, we have someone on the Board of BREC who is using her position to openly put pressure on some BREC members to stand for same-sex marriage.
This is the same group who, based on nothing other than his recent stand for gay marriage, supports Chris Christie and who publicly worked against Cuccinelli for his stand for traditional marriage. Keep in mind, this is a thug organization with only their own "special interests" in play. I wonder what they will do with democrat Charlie Crist now running for governor? I'm betting on them to vote for Charlie, along with some other mousey republicans. I will now be accused of 'splitting' BREC. I am not! I am in standing with the Republican Platform, which is what I stated the very night I was sworn-on to BREC. We must stop this in short!
