Lesbian Elected Mayor of Houston, Texas
http://news.yahoo.com/s/usnw/20091213/pl_usnw/DC25267_1 ^

Houston, Texas has become the largest city in the United States to elect an openly gay mayor after City Controller Annise Parker was declared the winner of a runoff election tonight. Social conservatives fought her election, funding a campaign aimed at turning out likeminded voters to support her opponent, former city attorney Gene Locke. But Parker's endorsements from labor, police, women's, gay rights and other groups were echoed by the Houston Chronicle, the area's major daily newspaper, and her campaign ran a superior get-out-the-vote effort.

Parker praised the support of the Victory Fund and its donors, who raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to help fund her campaign. “I am so grateful to the Victory Fund and its supporters for believing in this campaign from the beginning. This race was about the future of Houston, and whether we will face that future proud to be an open, welcoming, and fair-minded city. Tonight Houstonians said yes to a future like that, and I am glad the Victory Fund helped make that happen

We gotta pray for Houston. Looks like Joel Osteen and Lakewood Church has got some praying to do also. Maybe there’s redemption in this somewhere,maybe she’ll get saved.

Campaign finance reform that would really work:

Politicians should only be allowed to accept campaign donations from individuals who live within the geographical area the politician will represent.

No out of city, district, state or country funds, as applies. And, only individuals - no companies, corporations or groups of any kind should be allowed to contribute.

Politicians would sober up real fast.

Yeah, what the hell is going on in Texas. The TXGOP needs to stop this now. They need to work much harder and stop playing lip service to conservatives. I guess the same is true all over the place. The GOP either adapts or gets out of the way.

It's interesting how the liberal media is portraying this as some huge, nationwide defeat for social conservatives. When I, a well informed social conservative, only first heard about the race yesterday when Drudge had a blurb about it.

This is not the first time Houston has had a Lesbian mayor. Kathy Whitmire was elected like in the early ‘90’s as mayor of Houston.

There’s a whole elite G/L community down there. Has been for years.

Pretty simple: (1) Black vs. White, and Hispanics don't like Black; (2) Black vs. White and the dyke hired a savvy Republican media org. to do a massive mailing to Republicans at the last minute

We have a lesbo Sheriff, Lupe Valdez here in Dallas who has been elected twice using the same exact game plan. And we just missed out on having a Gay Mayor in the last election.

All of the big cities in Texas have been overrun by libs. Houston, Dallas, Austin and even San Antonio are all liberal enclaves. The smaller towns and rural areas are still conservative.

I didn’t see it in this article, but the NYT said, “Throughout the campaign, Ms. Parker tried to avoid making an issue of her sexual orientation and emphasized her experience in overseeing the city’s finances.”

I hope this is true. If she isn’t making an issue of her orientation, we shouldn’t either.

The least liberal of the two candidates won, and that is good for Houston.

I’m not sure why so many would see this as a defeat for conservatism.

Houston: “Can’t help you. We’re still working on how many lesbians does it take to screw in a lightbulb?”

Because Annise doesn’t have a conservative bone in her body...at least Locke had some conservatives pulling his strings.

The only big name Republican who supported Annise is Betsy Lake...and Houston Freepers already know how conservative she really is. Other than that she had a mailer by Roy Morales-—which she paid him over $50,000 to send out.

But I guess pay to play is the name of the game here.

When we get a chance to look at these election results by precinct, you will find that the most liberal or Democratic precincts voted for Locke and conservative or GOP voted for Parker.

Gene Locke got the black precincts (which are traditionally Dem) so obviously he’ll get some heavy Dem areas. There are no traditional conservative areas in the city with the exception of Kingwood and Memorial areas. Annise won because she got gays and white liberals. She probably did get some help from Roy “Pay to play” Morales’s mailer though.

My first reaction... YAAWWWNN - who cares? This is news?

On a lighter note, this must be fallout from the thousands of New Orleans refugees that poured into Houston after Katrina. Guess they taught the local populace how to hold back the floods by sticking a finger in the dike, and now that advice has influenced the vote for mayor.

The Montrose does not have enough people to turn an election and the Montrose has far fewer people than Memorial, Kingwood, Briargrove, Meyerland, Clear Lake and the entirety of the western and northwestern suburbs.

Locke, like Ray Nagin built a coalition among blacks and white conservatives. That formula works in New Orleans, but not Houston.

Preachers like Osteen and “churches” like Lakewood are a big reason the homosexualists are taking over. The popular church has abandoned the preaching of holiness, for the preaching of covetousness and has lost most of its influence on society.

Most of the church is like salt that has lost its savor and is being trampled by the world.

People constantly downplay, up front anyway, her lesbianism, saying fitness for the job is what matters. But she is certainly an activist for sodomy, as most homosexual politicians are, and she will be leveraged to the max by the most radical, fringe homosexual activist groups in the United States.

Just like with Øbama, I have a feeling the duped Houstonians will soon have buyer's remorse after the inevitable, unimaginable filth washes over this city with the mayor's blessing.
