In San Antonio, gay city councilwoman Elena Guajardo recently received an e-mail from a disgruntled constituent, asking her to help rid a bar in her district from "undesirables" visiting from predominantly Hispanic sections of town.
The constituent wrote the racially inflammatory e-mail on his employer's e-mail account, on company time. Guajardo notified his employer, and they fired the man.
Shortly after, the 52-year-old man killed himself.
This occurred two weeks ago, but it's sweeps week and the station insists on keeping the controversy alive.
The local ABC affiliate now is running this ridiculous poll:
Should City Councilwoman Elena Guajardo resign from office for the way she handled a citizen's complaint that eventually led to the citizen getting fired and prompting him to commit suicide?
I don't know
People can vote as often as they want by simply refreshing the page and re-voting.
So far, the homophobes and racists are jamming the poll.
Let's not let them do that.
