Gordon Fox came out immediately to support Frank G. Ferri in the Nov. 27th special election to replace Rep. Peter T. Ginaitt, D-Warwick in the RI House.
House Speaker Murphy came out for the Ferri opponent and endorsed candidate instead of Ferri who is openly gay. Recently however, even though he donated money for the Ferri opponent, Chair Murphy has seen the light and has himself endorsed Ferri, who like Fox is an openly gay man. He's also very much in the leadership of same sex marriage rights in Rhode Island.
Maybe this will be the year. Projo
