News & Politics

Apparently, NYC lesbian councilwoman Margarita Lopez is being shunned 'n scolded by the gay community for accepting $115,000 from Scientologists (cough PSYCHO-CULTIES cough cough) to help fund her campaign for Manhattan borough president.

According to ye olde evil New York Post, another openly-gay lawmaker -- assemblywoman Deborah Glick -- has been inundated with pleas from the gay community asking her to pull her endorsement of Lopez.

Bad Margarita, bad.
