If he were running for mayor in my town, I'd tell him to take a flying leap. A vow to protect our rights after opposing marriage equality and voting against civil unions as well is just plain laughable.

What has he done to earn the trust of gay constituents? <- Serious question for those in Lakeview.

It is interesting that ALL politicians court the gay vote with promises that they have no intension of fulfilling.

And it is even more abhorrent that an African American is so two faced as to preach equality when they have no plans to be tolerant.

Meeks is classic. Last week when discussing city contracts, the dummy said African-Americans were the only group entitled to be considered a minority - then made matters worse with subsequent "clarifications." That was the precise moment for him to board-up the campaign office & head back to his church. Emanuel has to be laughing his a-- off
