Omaha man convicted on two counts of child neglect running for office to stop same-sex couples getting benefits.

Meet Levi Lippincott, the 29 year-old chairman of the Sarpy County GOP who is running for Congress because the incumbent Republican isn’t anti-gay enough.

Lippincott is challenging Republican incumbent Jim Thompson in a race that some say shows a split in the local Republican Party. Lippincott said he is running, in part, because of Thompson’s vote to extend benefits to same-sex county employees.

It’s all about family values and making good families and raising good children in your families, which is why Lippincott is campaigning to stop straight couples who don’t want kids from receiving employer benefits.  Kidding!  He’s just after the gays, because they clearly can’t manage families the way straight guys like Lippincott can.

And about that…turns out ol’ Levi has…

…a lengthy court record that includes two child neglect cases, an unpaid credit card bill that prompted a lawsuit and numerous driving-related violations that led to a suspended license.

So what about a lesbian couple raising a well-adjusted child they’ve never neglected?  Too fucking bad, Lippincott gets benefits but they don’t…because how could they ever be good parents like he?
