That actually happened.
Van Hooser then had the nerve to post this on Facebook:
He's since deleted it but basically he claimed the crowd wasn't cheering at their victory in having their bigotry confirmed. Facts quickly revealed the truth and once we saw the video, I guess he figured out he was had.
Bill Shewey had a gay son who died in 2007. I wonder why our mayor thinks it's such a great idea to vote down an ordinance that would have protected his child. I'm going shut up about this now, since his other son is my eye doctor, a great guy, and someone I consider a friend. I don't know how he feels about his dad's behavior the other night. I hope they had a fight over it.
Ladies and gentlemen, pay attention to the folks running your city. This is the kind of stuff they're doing.
