The CEO of the company that owns Gold's Gym has long given money to conservative causes and now that support may be backfiring.

Nearly 2000 people have signed an online petition that calls for Gold's Gym CEO Robert Rowling to cease his funding of groups like American Crossroads that support candidates working against gay rights.

Politico revealed last week that Rowling has donated more than $2 million to American Crossroads, a group founded by Karl Rove. The group backs politicians like Sharon Angle (R-NV) and Roy Blunt (R-MO) who have vocally opposed same-sex marrriage.
