John Spencer, Moderate

Truck driver Merrill Keiser, Jr. is floating a few very controversial ideas in his candidacy for U.S. Senate in Ohio. Controversial is probably the least accurate way to describe his positions, and yes, Keiser is running in the democratic primary. He has said, “he wouldn’t be against making homosexuality a felony punishable by the death penalty.”

More from the Advocate:

He also suggested making “conversion to Christianity” part of the “war on terror,” to “teach Muslims the error of their choice in religion.” Keiser added that if a person believes in evolution, he or she “has no rights.”

Does this make John Spencer a moderate?
