Michigan's 80th District: Who Is Candidate Mary Whiteford?

The 80th district has been under the microscope and all candidates have been under that microscope except for one. 

 Who is candidate Mary Whiteford? 

She says she is a Christian, conservative and a patriot that honors the Republican Platform, but what we have found out puts all that into question.

We know that she has been endorsed by GLEP, the Great Lakes Education Project, which is a Devos backed "non-profit." The board consists of Jim Barrett, Betsy Devos, Greg McNeilly and former Speaker of the Michigan House, Jase Bolger.

Greg McNeilly Wedding Day
You may remember that Greg McNeilly, who has been dubbed Dick Devos' right hand man, was one of the first ones to get married in 2014 when gay marriage was legal.  

Could this be another reason, besides Common Core, why GLEP endorsed Mary Whiteford?  See Mary Whiteford has been very quiet about her daughter Alisa -- an open lesbian according to an e-mail we received with photos that indicate that fact. 

 At the 2014 League of Women Voters Candidate Forum,  Mary was the only candidate who said yes she would consider expanding special protections for sexual orientation under the Elliott Larsen Act. This expansion would include transgenders, homosexuals, bi-sexuals, and lesbians. The expansion could mean opposite sex in bathrooms and locker rooms.

 Would you want a man dressed as a women in the same bathroom or locker room with your child or daughter?  It could also force Christian businesses to hire those that go against their religious beliefs.  

Mary wrote in an email to a voter dated Monday, September 30, 2013 9:12AM: "Yes, if voters overturn the one-man one-woman law I would support marriage equally. I also wouldn't be surprised if that part of the Michigan constitution is found unconstitutional in the future." - Mary Whiteford

 In addition, on the 2-14 MLive Voter Guide when asked, "Do you support legally recognized gay marriage?", Mary skipped that question and left it blank.

Mary does not dispute that she was an active member of the American Association of University Women.  Mary stated though that had she stopped her membership when she found out it was a very pro-choice organization.  However, not only does this group promote abortion on demand, but anyone can take a quick look at the policies of the AAUW and see that they are a very liberal organization.   They stand against Hobby Lobby and support among other things: affirmative action, celebrating Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender lifestyles, global interdependence, the United Nations, international abortion programs, same sex marriage, and raising the federal minimum wage.   Who just joins an organization without knowing what they support?  

Mary is for  Common Core education.  At the 2014  AAESA Candidate Forum Mary responded that she supported the use of Common Core and Smarter Balance Testing.


This post has since been scrubbed from her facebook page.

A few days ago we received this very interesting e-mail exposes Mary Whiteford's openness to the gay community and questions her religious beliefs.  It also stated her openess to Common Core. This e-mail appears to pan out based on research. Here is how it reads:

Everything you are about to receive is 100% factual. Over the past years, Mary Whiteford has kept her daughter out of the spotlight, hidden. Why? The following clearly shows why. Mary Whitefords daughter is openly gay, shown in her profile pick with who I am assuming is her girlfriend, who works at the queer theater. Mary has kept this hidden in fear that it would cause her a loss of trust. But it doesn't end there. I will attach many pictures to this thread, proving where Mary stands. 

She has liked posts from LGBT, Atheist, and Liberal groups and organizations and has even commented in support for some of them (one from a group referring to republicans as bullshit) 
Why not be truthful with the district on where you stand... Why say one thing but demonstrate support for another? Why...

Note: this is not about the gay daughter, but the fact of where Mary stands on gay marriage. Is this why GLEP got involved with her?

Jesus, Republican's and Other BullShit's???  Mary Liked This???

The actual quote "We establish no religion in this country, we command no worship, we mandate no belief, nor will we ever. Church and state are, and must remain, separate. All are free to believe or not believe, all are free to practice a faith or not, and those who believe are free, and should be free, to speak of and act on their belief."

Mary did not sign the Taxpayer Protection Pledge
issued by American's for Tax Reform.

When asked in the MLive Voter Guide, "Would you sign or have
 you during this campaign signed a pledge
 to not raise taxes? (Yes or No)",
 Mary skipped this question and left it blank.

No nobody is saying Mary shouldn't run and the people should decide, but you the people should know your background and stances.
