GOP Presidential candidate files formal complaint alleging Romney illegally registered to...

Republican presidential candidate Fred Karger has filed formal complaints with the Massachusetts Election and Tax board against fellow candidate and former Massachusetts Gov.

Left out of first GOP debate, gay candidate Karger pushing forward

Members of the media refer to him as a "stunt candidate." He didn't appear on stage in South Carolina last week for the Republican presidential debate because he failed to hit the required support threshold-- 1 percent in five national polls.

Yet, set against the uninspiring candidacies likely to be waged by the men so far lined up to challenge Barack Obama for the White House, Fred Karger's candidacy could be the most influential, if he stays with it. A moderate conservative former Reagan aide, longtime political consultant and civil rights activist, he is also unabashedly gay-- the first ever openly gay GOP candidate for president.

Prop. 8 fallout continues with Mormon campaign cash investigation, ‘Dishonor Roll’

The fallout is still coming down in a big way over California’s Proposition 8 election results. There have been largely symbolic pushbacks over the voter-approved law that strips gay couples from the right to marry each other — like last weekend’s protest in Colorado at the Century Boulder Theater. And there are larger stakes issues at play as well — like an investigation into whether the Mormon Church, which heavily funded the measure, violated state laws by failing to report campaign expenditures.
