realmolo: The city council should now vote to remove this guy from office.Then, they should beat the shiat out of him.
Wyalt Derp: So by tightening his grip, he caused all his power to slip through his fingers? Excellent.
JesusJuice: It would have been much easier if someone had just shot the mayor.
Geotpf: This is kind of a demonstration of how bigotry works, and one of the main reasons why Democrats win in urban areas and Republicans win in rural areas.People in rural areas and small towns usually never know anybody who isn't almost exactly like them. They don't personally know any gays/blacks/Mexicans/Jews/Muslims/whatever. So, such people are scary foreigners.People in urban areas, by contrast, probably have at least one of each of the above living in the same building as they do.But this woman wasn't a "scary outsider lesbian"; she'd been in the town forever. So, when she was forced out, they rebelled.The two other reasons for this urban/rural Republican/Democratic divide are the size of government (people in urban areas "touch" government a lot (public transit for instance); people in rural areas, well, don't) and gun rights (guns in urban areas means drug dealers and gang bangers shooting up the place; guns in rural areas means a tool for hunting and protecting livestock from predators and for target shooting).
Serious Black: Jesus titty-farking Christ. What the hell is his problem with this lady?
netizencain: Look through the slide show for some really good quotes from the mayor.http://www.wbtw.com/story/25266895/folks-question-why-latta-mayor-fi re d-the-towns-first-female-police-chief
