SO NOW THE UTAH COUNTY GOP SAYS that I was never officially invited. Well, I got an email inviting me, which I sure thought was an official invitation. And I’m pretty sure David Kirkham thought he was conveying an official invitation, too. But perhaps there was confusion at their end about what was going on. With my paid speaking gigs there’s generally a contract, but this was, of course, unpaid. And this still remains: “Word got back to me over the weekend that they didn’t want Mr. Reynolds here because he was ‘pro gay’ and that was too controversial for them.” At least the puppy-blending rumors never made it that far. . . .
UPDATE: More here. It doesn’t sound like the problem was confusion. Oh, well.
