tammyOut Rep. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.) submitted a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton urging her to condemn the anti-gay bill recently introduced in Uganda, requesting that the she “use every means possible to convey to Ugandan leaders that this bill is appalling, reckless, and should be withdrawn immediately.”  The proposed bill would not only criminalize homosexuality, but would also penalize those who support gay rights, or even refuse to turn in others for being gay.

Joining Representative Baldwin in signing the letter were Representatives Gary Ackerman (D-Calif.), Howard Berman (D-N.Y.), and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.).

The full letter is available below the fold.
