Before becoming a full-time candidate, Christine O’Donnell crusaded as a religious right activist, including a national tour proclaiming that homosexuality was curable. Living then in Los Angeles, O’Donnell hired a young spokesman for her organization, The Savior’s Alliance for Lifting the Truth (SALT). That young spokesman, Wade Richards, had supposedly been cured of his homosexuality through a sort of evangelical boot camp. Soon after touring the country with O’Donnell, he came (back) out of the closet. Richards says that Christine O’Donnell has refused any further contact with him. “Even up until this day, she’s never returned any of my messages,” Richards says. He says he’s being bombarded with interview requests and that he doesn’t intend to do any – but he’s put out this YouTube statement about his experience with O’Donnell.
