The West Coast Armorette?


I read an article a while back about the election controversy in Spokane with the city mayor, Jim West. Admittedly, I was surprised that Spokane could generate controversy. Who knew? Anyway- it appears that the right-wing conservative mayor was caught on a gay chat website hitting up gay teens and soliciting city positions. Sullivan who was a proponent of anti-gay legislation and a staunch Republican, acknowledged "poor judgement" but said he was the victim of a "brutal outing" by the press.
More recently, two gay men have claimed that West was guilty of molestation back in the 1970's when he worked in the sheriff's office as a scout leader. This party is about to get interesting. I can't wait for the pictures of the mayor in drag to surface- he's got the makings of a west coast Armorette.
I hate to be unsympathetic to his situation, but for all the anti-gay rhetoric he's proselytized, I don't think there's a way to soften his coming-out party.

It is nice to see your first big political blog post M!

Every blog post out there that reaches more and more family and friends acts as another hit over the head that who they vote for has a direct effect on people they know and love.

Mike- your criticism of Mr. West does not mask your obvious attraction for him. . . maybe it's time to consider a job in small-town city administration. . .

Yes. I admit. He's do-able. In fact- if anyone can dig up more revealing pics, I'd be quite appreciative.

Hi,

I was just looking around the net for web sites related to man relationship and came across your blog. I was going to add a blog to my site, for man relationship and of course other related material, but I'm not sure if it would work.
I'm a bit worried about getting un-wanted 'rude' posts rather than ones related to man relationship on my site...... perhaps I just try it out - then you can come and post on it :)

Take care
Stewart
