CORY BOOKER marrying a gay couple, and comments by JEFF COOK-McCORMAC, 
senior advisor to the 
American Unity Fund, which lobbies Republican 
politicians to support LGBT rights).

week with dire warnings about the nefarious GIRL SCOUTS OF AMERICA and 
its trademark fund raising campaign (with intro music from "Leaping 
Lesbians" by SUE FINK).
