Fear and Self-Loathing in Spokane

Big Brass Blogger JJ is reporting that Spokane Mayor Jim West, another closeted, self-hating Republican queer who as recently as last week threatened to get rid of newly-instated domestic partnership benefits for Spokane City employees, has been outed.

Go read the rest at Big Brass Blog. JJ’s got the big scoop, and he’ll be keeping the info coming as he gets it.
