OMG, how many times do we have to see these headlines before people stop listening to the anti-gays in the GOP?

The more outspoken a male Republican is against gay rights, the more likely they are boinking men on the downlow.

It's only a matter of time before Tony Perkins (FRC), Joseph Backholm (PMW), Brian Brown (NOM), etc are caught with their hand in the gay cookie jar.

On a related topic, the anti-gays now have half the signatures they need to put Ref 74 on the ballot. Only 32 days left for them to get the remaining 60,000+ signatures.

Ummmmmm, did anyone else notice this story is from 2005?

I thought it sounded familiar.

For the record, Mayor West was recalled in Dec 2005 and died in 2006 from an undisclosed "cancer".

I see what happened. The article was published May 5, 2005, before the TOPIX crawler was launched in December 2005
.
TOPIX didn't have the original news story on record; so it posted as current news May 5 today

Just goes to show how stupid the American public is. We've always known that people like this jerk are just closet cases hiding their true sexual inclinations.

You mean closet-cases. This doesn't happen when openly gay people hold office. Nitwit.

Yeah, but isn't it interesting that the Seattle Post Intelligencer CHOOSES to bring this old story up again ... just when there is a petition floating around to stop Marriage Equality?
