Clinton Campaign Turns Away Gay Mayor

Providence’s gay mayor David Cicilline’s dispute with the local fire fighters union led the Clinton campaign to request his absence from an event this weekend: “Cicilline is involved in a long-running contract dispute with firefighters, and the Clinton campaign fears his presence would cause disruptive protests by the union. Cicilline says the campaign tried to pressure him to cave in to union demands, and he won’t do that.” [USA Today via GNW]
