Haha, so, funny story… you know how Jim Newberry and his top political dog, Mark Riddle, denied homophobic push-polling against Jim Gray several weeks ago? (Yet there’s plenty of evidence to the contrary…)
Well, whattya know?
Last night the two attended a mayoral forum in Lexington and this went down, roughly 40 seconds into the clip:
That’s right. Jim Newberry referred (accidentally? riiight) to Jim Gray as Jim “Gay” before quickly correcting himself. Gray, the current Vice Mayor, is openly gay.
Or should I refer to him as Jim G(r)ay? That’s how Newberry apparently wants the public to perceive him.
I think it’s high time for an official public apology.
