Where the Boys Are Still Wants the Boys

Ft. Lauderdale Mayor Jim Naugle still seems to think that the creepy man lurking in the bathroom lives a “homosexual lifestyle“.  But the Broward County commissioners are tired of hearing about it. 

Broward County commissioners voted unanimously Tuesday night to remove Fort Lauderdale Mayor Jim Naugle from the Tourist Development Council.

They seem to think his obsession is bad for business.

They said Naugle’s comments over the past two months have damaged the reputation they carefully created in the two decades since the area’s role as college Spring Break capital ended. They not only cited international news coverage and the deluge of calls and e-mails from concerned tourists, but said one gay-oriented convention has been put on hold.

Somehow I think this will only make Naugle a martyr to those who think fighting “the Gay Agenda” is more important than advancing the economy… or getting anti-gay politicians from scaring the kiddies in the men’s room.

I wonder if Mayor Naugle ever hosted Senator Larry Craig in Ft. Lauderdale? Could be Craig prop’ed Naugle and set him off.
