New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said this week that he isn't sure if he would sign a bill to ban the practice of using therapies to turn a gay child into a straight child.
His expected challenger for reelection, State Sen. Barbara Buono, a co-sponsor of the bill banning gay conversion therapy of minors, calls that "disgusting."
The Buono team clearly senses an opening to cast the popular Republican governor as a right-wing fanatic, something he is rarely if ever called.
He was asked yesterday about the bill, which passed out of a legislative committee Monday and has yet to be approved by the full state legislature.
Christie said that he generally doesn't decide on bills before they reach his desk and he had only recently heard of the practice of gay conversion.
