|"Don't spit on me."|
Obviously, this was a private meeting, so this account is based on discussions with three people who were there.
At some point during the meeting, tea-party Tony Simao, began blowing oil. As he bubbled over, so did his boyfriend, Tom Carroll. And with those two in a tizzy, Andy (the Jesus Clown) Azan began bubbling over as well. They crossed from the tea-party side of the room and confronted Vice Chair Lee Snover. Simao grabbed her arm, was screaming and spitting all over her. Calling her a bigot, he claimed he was investigating her for posting homophobic comments on this blog. In a blatant lie, he yelled that he could determine the IPs and ISPs of comments posted here.
Someone called 9-1-1, and they all took off.
Party organizations exist to elect members of that party. But all too often, they deteriorate into little more than sewing circles that act against their own interests.
This is one such occasion.
Simao can't blame this on Ron Angle, either. He's still recovering from some serious surgery and skipped the meeting.
Tony is an openly gay guy who once posted pictures of his penis on the Internet. Kinda' like a Gay Anthony Wiener. Unfortunately, this all came to light during his City Council race.I defended him at the time because I thought that was his own business. Democrats said he used poor judgment. I agree, but think their real motive was to show he was gay.
Ever since this happened, he's become a bitter man.
Being gay does not excuse being an asshole. You don't grab women. You don't spit on them, either, especially when you're gay.
While the Simao crowd might think they are purifying the Republican Party, they are ruining it.
