    Aside from his opinions on homosexuality, this guy is a spawn of Palin. He was created by a desperate McCain-Palin campaign. He is simply a plumber. No offense to plumbers.

    Ms. Zoraida Sambolin,

    As a heterosexual male, you did a wonderful and professional job in pressing Joe the Plumber about his stance on Gay people. It's sad that in 2012 you have someone running for congress and still does not comprehend the difference between a Pedophile and being Gay. What a very ignorant man and its scary that he's running for congress. How can he represent the Gay people or other minorities with those kind of beliefs. I hope Marty kicks his behind and hope that he stays in the profession what he knows best, PLUMBING!!!!!!!!!

    Thank you,

    Dr. Knox

    He's running in a D-packed district. I don't think he's even getting any support from his own party. Raised $60K so far and paid himself $9K. No chance.

    He didn't even give a yes or no... If you value your opinions so much, stand by them.
