Meghan McCain NOH8:Â Meghan McCain and Cindy McCain support “NOH8″ which is a protest of proposition 8.Â Proposition 8 is legislation making its way through California that seeks to ban gay marriage.Â Cindy McCain showed up on an Ad with duct tape across her mouth and “NOH8″ written on her cheek.Â She is said to have contacted NOH8 and offered to pose for the endorsement photo.
Meghan McCain shows up on Twitter in a similar photo to that of her mother. Meghan states that “I couldn’t be more proud of my mother for posing for the NOH8 campaign. I think more Republicans need to start taking a stand for equality.”
Meghan has asked to be the keynote speaker at National Equality Week at George Washington University. Her appearance will likely draw criticism from Republicans.
NOH8 is probably shocked that Cindy and Meghan McCain publicly back their campaign.Â After all, gay marriage is strongly opposed by many Republicans, and the McCains are among the most well-known conservatives around.
John McCain is up for re-election during the 2010 mid-term elections.Â Sarah Palin, his US Presidential campaign running mate will campaign for him.Â Unlike Meghan and Cindy, Sarah is a strong and vocal opponent of gay marriage.
John McCain doesn’t support gay marriage, but respects the views of his family members.
