Oh dang, that was recorded?

The newly elected mayor of Latta, South Carolina, just fired the town’s first female police chief because she is openly gay. She’s been a cop there for more than 20 years, with an exemplary record.

Bullard was recorded by a city council member making several unsavory statements about Moore and other town employee.

According to a local news report (which obtained the audio), Bullard said:

“I would much rather have.. and I will say this to anybody’s face… somebody who drank and drank too much taking care of my child than I had somebody whose lifestyle is questionable around children.Because that ain’t the damn way it’s supposed to be. You know.. you  got people out there — I’m telling you buddy — I don’t agree with some of the lifestyles that I see portrayed and I don’t say anything because that is the way they want to live, but I am not going to let my child be around. ”

I’m not going to let 2 women stand up there and hold hands and let my child be aware of it. And I’m not going to see them do it with 2 men neither.”

And I’m going to take their jobs away. And then I’m going to be in big big trouble.

Let’s hope so at least.

    I suppose he’s talking about babysitters who are drunk on communion wine…? Oh, THAT’s a good idea O_O

    Two women holding hands?


    And a child might… be… aware of it?

    Think of the damage!

    Best we hang ’em all.

    No offense, of course…

    Drinking too much does not constitute even a “questionable lifestyle” for Hizzoner?

    And if he “will say this to anybody’s face”, how could having his statement recorded and publicized bother him?

    Reminds me of how my now-adult, straight son spent many weekends at the home of his doting aunt and her (also doting) female partner when he was a child. These ladies were out, and had many gay friends, yet he didn’t even realize they were a couple until the partner passed away when he was in college. It just never occurred to him before then to think about their relationship as sexual, although they owned a house together and slept in the same bed.

    This is why the right-wing obsession with the supposed ill effects on our youth is all just bs to me; kids are just FINE with adults who are good people. The only ones dwelling on sex are these ignorant adults.

    Yanno, last I heard alcoholism was WAAAAAAAAAAY more influenced by who kids grew up around than homosexuality was.
