"It honestly would not have taken much; just a show of support, a short hello, a ride in the parade. Instead, the LGBT community is STILL asking what kind of Senator they will get when they vote for Brad Ellsworth. The Congressman strikes me as someone who is very intelligent, so I know he knows that he has a fence to mend here. An excellent way to mend the fence would have been a quick visit to Indy Pride. Instead, he may have just torn down some more fence posts."

-- Indianapolis political blogger Jon Easter discussing Senate hopeful Brad Ellsworth's no-show at Indy Pride and the LGBT community's reaction. Rep Andre Carson rode in the parade and had a booth as did several other local politicians.
