Her views on homosexuality created controversy. The ‘American Principles Fund,’ a conservative organization, targeted Hillary in an ad. Her anti-gay marriage stance was widely interpreted as support for her sister, Mary, who was dating Heather Poe at the time. The couple married in 2012.
Guest host and non-profit organization
