The bigotry of Portman, of course, because Portman is the subject of the discussion. I guess his far-right electorate could be faulted for the same reason but that's not what we're talking about in this post. Your lack of intelligence is starting to be a little disconcerting now..

So Portman, once elected, gets to deny basic rights to a certain section of the population to keep another section happy..? Based on his discretion? Now that makes a lot of ethical sense to me.

The issue is not about Portman getting reelected. The issue is about his 'change of heart' and what that says about him and what his ideas have meant for the people he has represented.

If that doesn't smack of ambiguity and equivocity I don't know what does.. You're a funny guy.
