Rahm Emanuel Didn’t Have To Cuss Out Chicago’s Gays To Get Their Support

Yesterday at the Center On Halsted, some 200 of our kind gathered to form the LGBT Committee for Rahm. The man himself was there, to receive accolades like “a proven friend to our community.” Maybe he’ll also muscle his way into Monday’s civil union signing ceremony hosted by Gov. Pat Quinn?
