Uganda’s “Kill The Gays” Bill Author Turned Away From D.C. Conference

Ugandan MP David Bahati

Warren Throckmorton has learned that Ugandan M.P. David Bahati, author of the draconian Anti-Homosexuality Bill, has been denied entry into the International Consortium of Governmental Financial Management conference being held this week in Washington, D.C. Throckmorton reports that according to conference spokesman Doug Hadden, Bahati arrived at the conference this morning where “[t]here was a frank but calm discussion and Mr. Bahati was not able to enter the building.”

Bahati was reportedly in the United States on a single-entry visa issued specifically for this event, according to a brief news item in Uganda’s Daily Monitor on Monday. It is unclear what the terms of his visa are, and whether he is now in violation of the visa as a result of being denied entry into the conference.

It is astounding that he was awarded a visa in the first place. Now that he cannot attend the conference, he should be summarily deported.

Anyone at State paying attention to this? Hello? HELLO? Is this thing on?….Foggy Bottom….? testing…

esurience: Seriously? As much as I’d like to see that POS get buried on her show, David Bahitler vs. Rachel Maddow could get ugly.
