I read other stories on this where the mayor specifically claimed that she was fired because she's a "pervert" that he doesn't want held up as a role model to his children. That's where the 'alcoholics and homosexuals' analogy was brought into play by the mayor. He pointed out that he'd rather his children see alcoholics than that they see homosexuals being treated normally and with respect by the citizens.

This is where we get to see the metier of the town's citizens. Will they stand up against this blatant bigotry, or will they let it pass with a shrug?

Until we see a federal anti-discrimination law, like ENDA, there's little she can sue for. Especially in South Carolina.

She was fired for a reason and that reason wasn't because she was homosexual. Big deal.
It's kind if like the libs who say if you disagree with the liar in chief, you're a racist, even though skin color has absolutely nothing to do with his incompetence.

The tragedy of the firing is that the Chief does not have any recourse. It is not against the law to fire someone just because they are Gay. This is a prime example of why Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity needs to be added to the Civil Rights law.

The chief wasn't fired because of gayness, but nice try though.

No, they didn't moron. He exercised his free speech and resigned.

I am not surprised that you are too stupid to tell the difference.

Tell me, if you have the guts, what name do you usually troll under?

Did you bother to read the article?

She was fired because...
"Moore conducted a background check without authorization, questioned the authority of a supervisor and contacted 'news media to help bring about disorder and disruption to the town of Latta,' among other things"

Why did you elect to truncate the first two words of the sentence that you cited?

I replied to the wrong poster. My reply was to nealcmh who obviously commented without reading the article.
