Steve Herfert along with Mike Touhey and George Ogden, all from West Covina, California have long vented their racists views toward people and residents.

All three are or have been employed by the city of West Covina, California along with E. Glassman the so called city attorney who it appears has and is not doing his job.

Feb. 05, 2013 - during a city council meeting a "stupid bigot" Steve Herfert blurted out a racists, slanderous comment, directed towards the only minority of the city council of West Covina, California.

Herfert was so ashamed is his actions he ran to lawyers to cover his behind, all the while staying away from city council meeting for a month or so.

THis is what a guilty person looks and acts like!

Now some racists supporter has written a cheap letter of support, wonder what this cost Steve Herfert?

West Covina councilman is nothing like a racist

I have known Steve Herfert since shortly after he first became a West Covina council person. He has been a leader in accomplishing significant things to the benefit of all who reside in West Covina and many who live in the San Gabriel Valley.

He is not a racist. To anyone in search of racists, my advice is don't overlook those who spew the innuendo most often and most loudly. They know that doing so almost assures a public outcry designed to inflict spiteful harm upon their target. Steve Herfert is undeserving of such spiteful harm. Rather, he is a dedicated public servant.

- William D. Booth, West Covina - lives in the gangster hang out called "the south hills' this is where the racists gather to hatch their plans.

THE SPINLESS PUKE WHO WROTE THIS LETTER SURE PUTS UP A LOT OF BULL, BUT IT DOESN'T CHANGE THE FACTS, STEVE HERFERT IS A RACISTS PIG, AND HE SAID IGNORANT STUPID THINGS IKE William d. booth has doe in his filthy letter to the editor.

Some are, arrested and convicted of exactly that, some even pleaded guilty.

That doesnít mean Poly is bad, just that it has a really bad image problem that will need to be overcome before much progress will likely be made.

Obama will apologize to Kim Jong Un. Which is the worst thing he could do.
All the leaders of the players involved in both Koreas, China, Japan and the USA are new and untested. Anyone of them makes a dumb move there could be terrible consequences. The world is in their hands. Hope for sanity and no mistakes. Good luck to the world.
Of course not American never apologizes, even when proved wrong, even when we should apologize we donít.( I always found that funny )

No one is going to apologize to Kim, it isnít the absolute worst thing we could do. The worst thing we could do is attack, like we did in Iraq, only to find that all the bluffing was exactly that and have the rest of the world lose more trust in us.

He just wants attention, best to ignore him, keep watch, stay alert, but do not react, he will back down with his hand out, then ignore that too.

Some in monogamous marriages are too. So what? We don't deny them monogamous marriage.

Very few polygamists are child molesters and hardly any are welfare cheats, no more and probably less than in the general population. Stop with the ignorant bigotry and hate. Even if "many" of them are, we don't deny marriage to monogamous child molesters and welfare cheats. Why deny it to polygamous?

SSM used to have a "bad image problem" too. So what? And it doesn't have near the "really bad image" you portray.

P.S. The government created the "welfare cheat" problem. Since poly is illegal, all wives beyond one are single mothers, qualified for welfare.

P.P.S. What harm would a marriage of three consenting adult women cause anyone? Are they child molesters and welfare cheats just because they're polygamists?

You are as bigoted and ignorant about poly as opponents of SSM are about SSM.

Every single solitary straight person who has publically announced their opposition to same-sex marriage is in essence "outing" themselves as proud heterosexuals.
You guys get on television and go on and on about the evils of homosexuality, which is an explicit endorsement of the notion that heterosexuality is THE ONLY acceptable orientation in their eyes.
Your very protest against gays and same-sex marriage is a flagrant example of how you proclaim your heterosexuality.
And Randy, you do use media to announce your orientation. You're here talking about it right now.
Bottom line, LGBT people are going to continue to "come out" until such a time that it is no longer necessary.
You might as well get used to it.

As I've pointed out not all who oppose SSM are straight, some are gay, and have publicly stated such.

A lot of talk, I am not opposed, but you are going to have a difficult time getting signatures on a ballot until you have better role models. If you donít think that is trueÖ then go ahead, donít mind me.

Go for it... just letting you know there is a bit of an obstruction in front of you, but I am not that obstruction.

Just trying to make you aware, I will vote with you in favor of Poly

Once again, for the umpteenth time, I'm not going out and getting signatures, I simply want to fully explore marriage equality. Your attempts to simply dismiss other forms of marriage besides SSM and OSM as unpopular notwithstanding.

Back when SSM was being discussed we heard the same nonsense that you use against polygamy. It's irrelevant.

I am not opposed to Poly

Go ahead... I will vote along with you

I was trying to make you aware of a problem and you freak out and start screaming at the top of your lungs

I am not opposed, I donít think it will happen soon for what to me is a pretty obvious reason, but I donít know that... just an assumption based on the people I know that have talked about it.

Go for it, I am not stopping you and will vote along with you

To borrow a lesson in statistics from the great "Rose_NoHo", more monogamists commit these crimes than polygamists. Many more.

And many more monogamists are convicted of them too. What would you say more than 300 million to one?

Relax, happy marriages have nothing to do with crime. And crime is not an excuse to deny someone marriage.

Thanks for admitting what you are. We all know what is first on that list. Deny what rights? The trophy is for a man and a woman. Otherwise gays have the same rights. You are fighting over a trophy. That's all.

Why not, are you not for marriage equality?

This is the number one thing you bring up on this forum about Prop 8 ( which has nothing to do with Prop 8 ), if it is that near and dear to your heart why are you not out getting signatures?

I thought this was your life ambition, the only aspect of marriage equality that you can think about.

Don't get me started! Just look at the Middle East before and after Obama.

I bet Obama's next step in the Korea crises will be inappropriate and dangerous. It's time to be tough with Baby Kim. At the very least he's cruising for more aid and whipping up his people's patriotism to take their minds off the killing poverty and starvation.

Prop 8 discriminates against poly too. Exactly the same as it does against same sex. You know, EQUALLY.

My life's ambition is certainly not legalizing polygamy. And you know it jackass. It's irrelevant to the discussion but walking again is high on my list.

Stop trying to stifle the free exchange of ideas. What are you afraid of?

We all understand that is what you think Prop 8 is all about. That is why it was passed in California, to block Poly ( which was already illegal ) That is was a sneak measure not to make same sex marriage illegal as advertised, but to make Poly which was already illegal and will still be illegal when prop 8 is overturned even more illegal.

A lot of people believe a lot of things, there are quite a number of people that believe in a magic tree, talking snake and a rib woman. I know people that think G W Bush masterminded the destruction of the world trade center.

I am not one of thoseÖ but there are some around.
