Conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart says former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin supports gay GOP group GOProud in CPAC row.

Breitbart, a member of GOProud's advisory board, on Monday posted a Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) interview with the conservative celebrity as evidence.

In the interview, Palin is asked her position on the decision by social conservatives to skip this weekend's annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) convention because of GOProud's sponsorship of the event.

Several Republican lawmakers, including South Carolina Senator Jim DeMint and Ohio Representative Jim Jordan, and a smattering of socially conservative groups – the National Organization for Marriage (NOM), FRC Action and Concerned Women for America (CWA) – have joined the boycott.

“[S]hould conservatives not reach out to others, not participate in events or forums that perhaps are rising within those forums are issues that maybe we don’t personally agree with?” Palin said in the interview. “And I say no, it’s like you being on a panel with – shoot – a bunch of the liberal folks whom you have been on and you provide good information and balance, and you allow for healthy debate, which is needed in order for people to gather information and make up their own minds about issues. I look at participation in an event like CPAC or any other event, along, kind of in that same vein as the more information that people have the better.”

Breitbart posted the video on a blog post titled “Sarah Palin Throws Support Behind GOProud Participation at CPAC.”

Palin's record on gay rights, however, is a mixed bag at best. In November, she defended her daughter's use of a gay slur. Palin has also supported many anti-gay candidates, spoken at gatherings sponsored by anti-gay groups and tweeted support for rabidly homophobic pastor James David Manning, who insists gays should be called “fags.”
