Transcript HOUSTON VOICE www.houstonvoice.com JUNE 3,2005 5 | national news briefs N.Y. high court says New Paltz mayor must face trial ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — The village mayor who challenged New York law by attempting to marry gay couples last year will face trial, the state's highest court ruled last week. New Paltz Mayor Jason West faces 24 misdemeanor counts of violating the state's domestic relations law by marrying couples without licenses in late February 2004. He faces fines and up to a year in jail if convicted. West's actions came amid a flurry of efforts in various states to wed gay couples after San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, a Democrat, allowed gay couples there to marry in February 2004. Those efforts have largely been put on hold by the courts. West, a Green Party member, has maintained he was upholding the gay couples' constitutional rights to equal protection — and thus his oath of office — by allowing them to wed in the Hudson Valley college town in late February 2004. But state officials, including Gov. George Pataki and Attorney General Eliot Spitzer, have said same-sex ceremonies violate state law. The state Court of Appeals, the state's highest The New York Court of Appeals ruled last week court, last week refused West's request for that New Paltz Mayor Jason West should be put on it to hear the case without having lower trial for attempting to marry gay couples last year. courts weigh in first.

The Supreme Judicial Court authorized the nation's first same-sex weddings with its landmark November 2003 ruling. Joseph Doyle, executive director of the Catholic Action League, had argued that the ruling went too far by allowing gay marriages to proceed before voters had a chance to consider the constitutional amendment. Doyle's lawsuit sought a stay on gay marriages until after the vote, which could happen in November 2006, at the earliest, but the high court rejected his request. The court held same-sex couples shouldn't be denied the right to marry on the possibility voters would approve the amendment. Microsoft severs ties with anti-gay lobbyist SEATTLE (AP) — Microsoft Corp. says it has severed ties with Ralph Reed, a Republican lobbyist who once headed the Christian Coalition and is now running for lieutenant governor in Georgia. "Ralph Reed is no longer on retainer with Microsoft," company spokesperson Ginny Terzano told the Associated Press last week- The move came a month after liberal activists urged Microsoft to quit using Reed as a political consultant, upset that the software company had pulled its support for a Washington state gay rights bill it had backed in the past. The company has since said it will support such legislation in the future. "Microsoft has a wide range of consultants on retainer, both Democrats and Republicans, and they are brought on based on need and for various reasons, but it's not our policy to discuss specifics about their retainers," Terzano said. Microsoft claimed Reed lobbied only on international trade and competition, not social issues. Protesters call for Spokane mayor embroiled in sex scandal to resign SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Demonstrators who picketed outside City Hall say they plan weekly appearances until Mayor James E. West resigns. About 30 people demonstrated last week in the first organized public protest against West since the Spokesman-Review newspaper raised allegations of past sexual misconduct and contemporary misuse of office against the mayor on May 5. The demonstration capped a week in which West said he will be vindicated by two separate investigations into his conduct, and several major Spokane business and economic development groups called for him to step down. West also defended himself on NBC's "Today" show on Monday, denying allegations of past sexual molestation of boys. Anti-gay fliers trigger anger at Southern Oregon University ASHLAND, Ore. (AP) — Fliers urging the killing of gays have been littering the campus of Southern Oregon University the past two weeks, triggering anger and shock from administrators, students and politicians. One flier bore the message: "And the Bible says that homosexual offenders should be put to death. ... So help eradicate homophobia now. Kill the Queer." Roger Wert, who is gay and president of the student Senate, said he recently was the victim of a hate crime in which several young men accosted him and two female friends at a convenience store in Ashland, making lewd sexual advances. Also last week, students at the university voted to ban military recruiters as well as recruiting material from the university's student union. Students reasoned they should exclude recruiters because the military violates the university's anti-discrimination policies by barring gays and preventing women from certain jobs, such as combat roles. Investigators do not know if that action is the motivation behind the anti-gay fliers.
