New Family Research Council Radio Ad Says Jim Martin Supports Gay Marriage

The Family Research Council, a "pro-family" organization founded in 1983 by Tony Perkins, is out with a new ad alleging that Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Jim Martin has made "protecting abortion rights one of his top legislative priorities" and "supports gay marriage."

However, during a June Democratic U.S. Senate Primary debate sponsored by local Fox affiliate WAGA-TV, Jim Martin said he did not support same-sex marriages [Source: Georgia Politics Unfiltered, "Democrats Debate: Jim Martin Opposes Gay Marriage", June 29, 2008].

The 30-second radio spot was paid for by the Family Research Council Action Political Action Committee who recently endorsed Martin's Republican opponent, Saxby Chambliss.
