An openly gay chief of police has been fired by a South Carolina mayor who was caught saying he preferred alcoholics to homosexuals.
Crystal Moore, a 20-year veteran with the Latta Police Department, was relieved of her duties as chief of police on Tuesday following seven reprimands handed down by newly elected Earl Bullard.
The chief had recently discovered during an investigation that the town's parks and recreations director Vontray Sellers had operated a city vehicle with a suspended license.
During the probe, Moore found that Bullard failed to conduct a proper background check on Sellers before giving him the job.
On Tuesday, Bullard dismissed Moore, who is the Latta's first female chief of police and has not faced disciplinary action in her two decade career.
Bullard claimed Moore conducted a background check without authorization, questioned the authority of a supervisor and contacted 'news media to help bring about disorder and disruption to the town of Latta,' among other things.
But many in the community, including city officials, are questioning whether the real motive behind the firing was retaliation or the fact he allegedly doesn't like gay people.

Wow. A twofer. War against women and gays in one stroke.
David Eich.... thats all ill say
She should be fired for her looks alone.
She’s a lesbian?
Wonder what made him suspicious she was a lesbian...
Cool. Elena Kagan showed up at the U.S. Supreme Court Halloween party dressed as a police officer?
Any chance she got hired because she was gay? I bet they don’t think that’s wrong.
Yeap, this one might get messy. Hopefully the locals will get past the “gender” identification and see that their newly elected mayor may not be on the up and up.
Looks just like the ones on The L Word. /s
I remember when she was mayor of Philadelphia
‘I can’t believe that we still have no equal rights...You still have the rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of property. What IS your beef? Oh, also a pension.
Who’s that guy?
That’s a man, baby.
When the backlash comes, it’s gonna be a bitch. You cannot force homosexuality as “normal behavior” on decent society without a backlash occurring.
