Take a look at P.J. Gladnicks post over at Newsbusters .
The gist: Houston Mayor Annise Parkers daughter had trouble getting her driving test done to get her drivers license.
Parker, a lesbian who married her partner out of state after being elected mayor of Texas largest city, blamed the problem on the Texas Department of Public Safety and, specifically, on Texas law which does not recognize same-sex marriage. Their daughters are adopted and they also have a foster son.
Parker launched her blame game in this tweet.
Daughter needs drivers test. Has all docs, some in MomA name, some MomK, but w/ birth cert showing both. DPS says can only be from 1 mom!-A

Texas doesnt recognize same-sex marriage. I should add, yet. Despite the fact that last time SSM was put up for a vote in Texas it lost by miles, courts will impose it at some point.
So Parkers daughter had trouble getting her drivers test. An update to the original HuffPo story about this cleared up who was at fault. Hint: It wasnt the Texas DPS, and it wasnt about same-sex marriage at all.
UPDATE: 5:15 p.m. DPS Press Secretary Tom Vinger took issue with Parkers recollection of events, writing in a statement, All individuals applying for their first Texas driver license must provide a variety of documents to prove their identity, Social Security Number, U.S. citizenship or lawful presence status, and Texas residency. In this case, the adult applicant did not initially present sufficient documentation to prove residency. Once she provided the required documentation, she was able to complete the transaction. There is no indication that any delay in the process was related to same-sex marriage.
At that point, Parker clammed up and stopped commenting on the matter. Damage done the story of the mayor whose daughter got blocked over same-sex marriage had already gone nationwide.
Parker has established that she is a shameless liar just over the past couple of weeks. She subpoenaed several area pastors, specifically demanding their sermons, their internal church communications, and their personal physical appearance at the offices of a known leftwing law firm in Houston. When some of us pointed out that the sermons in question are available online, Parker appeared to back down, saying that she wasnt interested in the sermons anyway despite the fact that the original subpoenas specifically demanded that the pastors turn their sermons over.
Now Mayor Parker has lied about her daughters driving test, in order to smear Texas DPS and agitate against the states definition of marriage.
I’m astounded that her only issue in being mayor is gay rights 100% of the time. Nothing else matters.
how can a birth certificate show 2 moms?
That is totally anti-science
“It seems Mayor Parker is a pathological liar when it comes to anything about lesbianism and same sex marriage, the voters in Houston had better wake up. “
Agree about “better wake up”. As NBT (native born Texian) I find it embarrassing that Houston would elect this person as mayor...
It’s been many years since I visited Houston - too hot and humid for me, but the people were outstanding. How did this creature get elected mayor?
Parker is term limited and cannot be re-elected mayor. She will be running in a much larger area election next time.
That’s an excellent question and I haven’t the slightest idea. I understand Houston is fairly liberal now but I wouldn’t think they’re commie leftists.
Thanks...Do you think she has a chance of being elected to higher office in Texas after these pathetic goings on?
Mayor Porker has been in city politics for a long time.
She got elected mayor with name recognition and a lot of help from Acorn and SEIU types. She kept her lesbian/gay agenda under wraps until she got into her third term and is term limited. She feels safe to let the mask down now.
At election time, all Democrats lie . . . about everything.
No possible way for her to be elected in a statewide office.
But obviously, as Shelia Jackson Lee has demonstrated, there are districts that may fall to her “charms”.
Too many that work in the city, live in suburbs that don’t vote in a Houston Election.
Yep, good point.
Wagon riders and illegal alien votes.
The Houston city limits are gerrymandered to ensure democrat control of the city inside a county with republican leadership in almost every office.
It is like that in many big cities, if the GOPe was not a bunch of spineless cowards, they would take action on this.
I find it embarrassing that Houston would elect this person as mayor...
I find it embarrassing that America would elect Obama as president but it happens.
Lets just correct both.
She’s a leftist, I take it for granted that she’s a liar. I am not joking either. Leftists lie, all the time.
I have wondered if all the Katrina transplants are a factor.
She will move to a “gay friendly” state and run for office there - claiming that she couldn’t change Texas, but fights for gays everywhere.
