Louis Marinelli Is Totes Pissed At HRC For Stealing His Bus Tour

It seems that bus tours are the political shill of choice this summer, with every candidate and organization under the sun taking their crazytalk across the country (side note: progressive candidates?  Save the gas and take the train).  Now, some are saying that HRC may have stolen Louis Marinelli's idea for his "Road to Equality" bus tour:

Louis is PISSED.

"By the way, nice name for the tour, HRC. ‘The Road to Equality’ has a nice ring to it and if you need a good graphic for promoting the tour, I put one on the NOME website a week or so ago to promote my marriage equality tour. See the big slide graphic for the equality tour where the flags of each state we intend to visit are? Well, right above that is where you’ll see the green highway signs on one of which is written ‘Road to Equality’. I spent a lot of time on that in Photoshop but [you] can take that, too, if you need it.

"I understand the HRC has the manpower, resources, reputation and ability to do their tour and do it well. I won’t even contend the fact that they’re [sic] tour will likely draw more media attention and more people will likely attend their events and sign up for their newsletter and give their credit card information to a young man or woman walking around with a clipboard soliciting donations. Hey, you need money to get the job done and I fully understand that."

Whoa!  Bitter and catty, table for one!  While the two tours have different concepts, I can totally understand his beef.  Dear HRC: why don't you just come up with something else?
