An openly gay Connecticut elected official wrote a letter to Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz Wednesday to express his concerns about the party holding it national convention in a state that just banned gay marriage.

“How can we, as a party committed to the rights and freedoms of all Americans, tacitly endorse the North Carolina vote by marching our leadership and our president into Charlotte in September?” state Comptroller Kevin Lembo wrote in this letter.

He acknowledged it may be logistically impossible to move the location and the date of the convention, but at the very least he believes the party should be addressing the issue possibly through a resolution.

A spokesman for the Democratic National Committee was not immediately available for comment Wednesday afternoon.
