If Billie Jean King Wants Michael Bloomberg for Mayor, So Should You!


Billie Jean King is the lesbian tennis star who is not using flimsy gay marriage laws to find her ex in court. But King is the lesbian tennis star who received a Presidential Medal of Freedom. So certainly she carries some influence, right? Then you’re the type of person who will care that, coinciding with today’s 2009 US Open launch, Ms. King has come out in support of New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s run for a third term. It’s no secret Bloomberg is after the gay vote, especially after a stab at helping Gov. David Paterson get New York’s state legislators to pass a marriage equality bill. But yes, this is the same man who has supported gay marriage for years, but still wanted it challenged in the courts.
