      Proof that there are assholes on all sides of issues — as unlikely as it is, I’d prefer that Koch is straight rather than the Kapo he most likely is.

      Gay or Not, Koch did NOTHING about AIDS in NYC and for that he belongs in the HIV HALL OF SHAME right next to Reagan

      Gender and Sexual identity need taken out of the picture in polities and this is slowly changing but not fast enough.

      @Raquel Santiago: Don’t forget about the religious aspect. I don’t care if a politician is religious or not. Just do the job that you were hired to do!

      Ugh, hearing these burned out old closet cases in the context of today just makes your skin crawl.

      Koch’s first cousin, the late Evelyn Kotch, a lesbian active in Log Cabin(!?) came to the local LGBT center (Norwalk CT) to give a talk. This was, oh, 15, 20 years ago. She told us, in case anyone cards, that her cousin Ed was family in more than one way.

      Koch always cared more about himself than anyone else. His sexuality isn’t really the issue, his chronic and political narcissism should be. Koch always cared only about Koch and keeping himself in the public eye. He is a cancer on the body politic and needs to be relegated to the distant past.

      In my previous comment, please strike “and” in the second sentence between “chronic” and “political.” My typo. Could we have an “edit post” feature here, please?
