First step down
Many yet to go.
Broward County commissioners voted unanimously Tuesday night to remove Fort Lauderdale Mayor Jim Naugle from the Tourist Development Council.
The vote came after Naugle's recent comments charging Fort Lauderdale has a problem with gay sex in public restrooms, and that gays are unhappy.
The leadership of Broward County's multibillion-dollar tourism industry demanded Thursday that Naugle stop his attacks on homosexuality even as he pressed them to change a marketing campaign meant to attract gay tourists.
Unanimous! Well done, Broward County Commissioners. Getting rid of Naugle completely will be far more difficult, if not impossible, but this certainly sends a message that the city itself is distancing itself from Naugle's crupid and stubatshit statements on gays.
