The story of the trashed lily pond continues to unfold. Apparently, one of the people being considered to be an organizer (even though he wasn’t even there) is the boyfriend of the Republican candidate for mayor of San Diego. The whole thing seems strange – the pond party as well as this mayoral race. How many ultra right-wing gay Republicans are there? Especially ones who voted against Prop 8 here in California? Oh my gosh! I think there is one and he is running for mayor of San Diego! We get it all. We get Heaven’s Gate, the Amber Dubois/Chelsea King murders, the San Ysidro McDonald’s massacre, and…..Carl DeMaio for mayor. Carl is acting the victim now because people are questioning his ethics. I found a video on YouTube where he was booed the entire length of the gay pride parade here last month. Methinks he would need a super miracle to pull off an election after all of this. His own community doesn’t support him, and the community at large will now have a whole new view.
After this episode, it’s going to be impossible for him to distance himself from these issues. I didn’t even know much about this guy until yesterday, but I certainly did my homework last night. My, oh my! He is Little Mister Cut Your Program Even If It Kills You – So What.
The San Diego police are on the hook too. They were warned about this event 24 hours before it happened, and they chose to ignore it. We also have no idea where park security was for 2 hours. The guard claimed he never saw anything. How do you NOT see 1,500 people in swimsuits trashing a lily pond at 1:00 in the morning? I think I would notice that if I was supposed to be patrolling the park in my truck.
America’s Finest City? I am beginning to have serious doubts.
