Gay billionaire PayPal founder Peter Thiel funded the campaign of an anti-LGBT+ Republican running for US senate in Kansas. Kansas US senate candidate Kris Kobach lost the GOP primary to representative Roger Marshall, a less divisive Republican, on Tuesday, 4 August, despite an influx of cash from the gay PayPal billionaire. According to Recode, Thiel put $850,000 into a super PAC funding Kobach’s campaign and Patrick Miller, a political scientist at the University of Kansas, described the billionaire as “the lifeblood of the pro-Kobach campaign”. Kobach is a former Kansas secretary of state who, according to GLAAD, previously compared marriage equality to polygamy and drug use, accused the Human Rights Campaign of promoting “homosexual peadophilia”, suggested that greater numbers of legal Hispanic immigrants could lead to “ethnic cleansing” in the US and advised that Donald Trump create a “Muslim registry”.
