The Brutal Outing Of A Glendale City Councilman Leads To The Brutal Outing Of His Archenemy

Mike Mohill (pictured left), a city councilman in Glendale, California, has been battling in recent weeks with colleague John Drayman (right) — who found it necessary to tell everyone that back in the 1980s that Mohill was arrested on lewd sex charges. Something about playing dirt before the heated election coming up on April 5? So last night, Mohill turned the tables on his city council nemesis, and went public with his sexuality. And his sex crimes. Oh, and Drayman’s rumored sexuality, too.

Though Mohill has been married since 1977, he told the council he is gay, and two of his decades-old crimes amounted to cruising for gay sex in public. (He pleaded no contest and served probation and paid a fine both times, but didn’t serve time.) He was also arrested for trespassing. But don’t expect him to get a divorce anytime soon: Mohill says his wife, who took the mic before he did last night, has known he is gay since his late 80s arrests, and pair have a “marriage in which we share a powerful affection and respect for each other.” But that wasn’t Mohill’s’ biggest bomb against Drayman. No, the biggest bomb was when he accused Drayman of being a closet fag himself! Reports Patch (which uses the term “sexual preference”):

Mohill went on to rail against Drayman, who he blames for making this campaign “personal” rather than “public.” Mohill claims that, for his part, his criticisms have been directed only toward Drayman’s public life, rather than his personal life. Mohill then went on to state Drayman is “reputed to be gay himself.”

To conclude, Mohill said “I would hope this statement would satisfy […] lewd curiosity. I’m not so naive as to believe this statement, as agonizing as it, will not severely hurt my election chances. How badly, only time will tell.”

Does this mean Drayman will have to answer not only for his personal attacks on Mohill, but also for Mohill’s allegations that Drayman is also a gay?

Gay-on-gay personal attacks are not good for our community, people! But they are good for political theater. Glendale just got a whole lot more interesting.

    This is some nasty shit, for real.

  • justiceontherocks

    Another great example of the kind of traditional marriage that groups like Focus on Family, the Family research Council, and GoProud are working to protect.

  • Erich

    Not to be rude, but people didn’t know he was gay before this?

  • GetBalance

    When working in public office, scrutiny of candidates is the normal course of business. He was also careful in hiding details of his misdemeanor which may have been fully justified. He should have expected these things to come to light.

    Doesnt everyone know? Skeletons make nasty bed partners.

    Interesting… Queerty says…
    “Gay-on-gay personal attacks are not good for our community, people! But they are good for political theater. Glendale just got a whole lot more interesting.”

    Hmmmm…. Sounds like Queerty will now stop trying to OUT celebs etc who do not want to come out…. Outting, or trying to Out, someome one is an attack

    Or is Queerty part of the “do as we say, not as we do” school of thought???

    or is Outing just good theater, and good for adding $$$’s in Queerty’s pockets??

    “Gay-on-gay personal attacks are not good for our community, people!”

    Isn’t the platform for Queerty gay-on-gay attacks? Does this mean Queerty will be shutting down finally?

  • ousslander

    what’s with the use of the word fag, Queerty? Are you trying to be hip or some dippy shit like that? So i guess the eidotrs don’t mind if everytime someone talks to them they are referred to by fags.

    And don’t complain about kids using the word when you as adults condone it and promote it. hypocrites.

    “Outting, or trying to Out, someome one is an attack”

    No it’s not.

    Since when has honesty been a bad thing?

    A closetted public representative is a dishonest public representative, and dishonesty has no place in public life.

    Someone who wants to lurk in a closet is entitled to do so. But not if they enter public life.

  • JAW


    Get real… as long as we, or anyone, are not doing something illegal. Many of us love knowing who is sleeping with whom, but we do not have the right to pry into their lives. we do not have the right or entitlement to Out anyone who is minding their own business.

    The guys in Cal are just sad. They both knew something about the other that should have stayed private. They both lost and both look like the fool.

  • Johnston

    “A gay” sounds retarded. Please use better grammar. Also, those two are total disgraces. If one of them is already gay, we don’t need any more garbage as part of our community. :)

  • Roberto

    I am sure everyone know he is gay before, especially his sex partner LOL….

    There are non-Armenians in Glendale??? I think that’s deserving of it’s own headline.

  • Oprah

    I am interested with Mrs. Mohill.I mean, are there really women like her? So desperate to be with a man that they would be in a marriage of falsehood?With a homo husband? Really? How pathetic. LOL

  • Spike


    BINGO!!!! Four gold stars for that comment!!!!

    He really just needs to move to Long Beach, where older gays have nested and no one cares if your spouse has a dick or a vajaja – as long as you don’t hate, and no one has to explain ones cruising habits, from 20 years ago or last week. Oh yea, and the view from Glendale is, Pasadena? The view from LB, the Pacific Ocean . . .

  • Shannon1981

    I feel sorry for his wife. Strong affection indeed. She is really so low on self esteem and options that she’s willing to let her hubby cruise for dick? Pathetic.

  • Bebe

    “Brutal outing”? How about just, yawn, boring? This IS Glendale after all: home to Bob’s Big Boy and Baskin-Robbins.

    @ No. 19, Spike. No, the view from Glendale is Burbank. The view from Pasadena is Pasadena. Long Beach has been blue collar for decades, so you’re probably correct: both council members should move there.
