on Sam Scandal
Portland made a historic advance in the cause of equality when Adams got elected. As a former member of the Right to Privacy board -- and before that a member of the San Francisco Society for Individual Rights -- I too would much rather have an openly horny gay Dem as mayor! Unlike some of the vultures who are now circling the body, waiting for it to get cold, I am going to support the man what brung us to this dance and I very strongly suggest (have already suggested) that these vultures just stifle!
The other side is circulating petitions to unseat one of the brightest people ever to become mayor of Portland (and one who has been the city's constant administrative apparatchicks). It's up to the gay leadership to not only stifle but to combat these petitions. If it becomes so unfortunate that the bigot bunch and the whiner class among the gay community do manage to engineer an election, it is up to those of us who believe in equality as well as competent mayoralty to support Sam Adams.
