Even with the threat of a recall looming, Troy, Michigan Mayor Janice Daniels continues to put any chance of a hairdresser fixing that mess atop her head at risk with bigoted homosexuality comparisons.
So, what latest health warning has Mayor Daniels issued?
Reports Detroit's CBS:
“What I said while I was mayor … I was in a business meeting, I come from a business perspective … I said that I would bring a doctor into a meeting that would say that the homosexual lifestyle is dangerous,” Daniels said, adding, ”Had I been with a group of smokers I might have said I would like to bring a doctor into this meeting to say that smoking is dangerous.”
Is it dangerous to be gay? Langton asked.
“I think that doctors can make a case for it certainly,” the mayor said, adding that she “had no opinion” on whether being gay is more dangerous than smoking.
Hmmm. What about getting a doctor in to share how dangerous bigots are for a community, Janice?
The local CBS affiliate goes on to report that efforts to collect signatures to recall Mayor Daniels have surpassed expectations:
Organizers of the recall campaign reportedly delivered 9,300 signatures Tuesday to the Elections Division at the Oakland County clerk’s office.
The Detroit News said the group needed 7,985 valid signatures by June 15 to force the recall election — which means unless the signatures are challenged as invalid, the recall election will happen in November.
