Pat Brady lost his job as chair of the Illinois Republican Party because he supports same-sex marriage equality. He got his new job for the same reason. Brady has been hired by the ACLU of Illinois to lobby legislators on behalf of marriage equality.

And the legislators will, in Brady’s words, be “primarily Republicans” in the Illinois House, where a marriage equality bill passed by the state Senate is stalled. Brady said his work will be “narrowly focused on the 10 or 11 (Republican lawmakers) who were open to the possibility of voting ‘yes’ on this.”
