Thank you for contacting PETA about political candidates who engage in blood sports. Please understand that PETA certainly opposes any activity which causes intentional harm to animals, including hunting and fishing.

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, educational organization, PETA is prohibited from participating in any political campaigns or endorsing a particular candidate or party. However, we encourage you to contact the candidate or party that you are interested in directly; ask the party representatives for their position on animal rights, and tell the candidate that animal rights issues will influence your vote.

To learn a candidate's position on a comprehensive list of issues, including animal protection, please contact Project Vote Smart at 1-888-VOTE-SMART or http://www.vote-smart.org (be sure to include the hyphen).

PETA's "Guide to Letter-Writing" (http://www.peta.org/alert/guide.html) offers helpful tips for writing to elected officials.

To learn more about ways to combat cruelty to animals as "sport," please see the following sites:

Thanks again for writing and for everything you do for animals!

Sincerely,

501(c)(3) nonprofit, educational organization,
BS. not withstanding they (had?) endorsed him.
Which kind of made me think for a minute,
that PETA has now endorsed hunting too.
Oh, well.

what you were looking for. They condemn his actions (and the prez ) also for hunting. Suggest a issue comparison website and contacting the morons, er, candidates directly....

All of the usually PETA protesters must have had the day off when Kerry went hunting for votes.

Nah - they are like all the gun owners that overlook GWB's promise to sign an assault weapon ban. They just overlook it because the other guy is worse. If that have principles, they will not vote for kerry.

Seems like a reasonable answer, legally speaking.

They say that due to the nature of the question they cannot answer that due to their tax-exempt status - and then proceed to make it abundantly clear they are totally opposed to what Kerry did.

Did you really need it spelled out? Translation: "We can't comment on Kerry's hunting for a political photo op, but we can say we are adamantly opposed to killing anamals for any reason whatsoever, especially gratuitous killing for political photo ops."

From a gun owner's standpoint there's a big difference between Bush claiming to support the AWB when he obviously doesn't, and Kerry claiming to support RKBA when he obviously doesn't.

As for principles and politics, if leading with your chin ever got anybody anywhere then Walter Mondale would've beat Reagan back in '84 when he promised during one of the debates to raise everybody's income tax. Nobody doubted the Liberal Democrat Mondale's sincerity on that issue and he lost by an historic landslide.

Your choice is evil, or more evil. You'd rather pick "more evil"?
