Transcript HOUSTON VOICE • JANUARY 28, 2000 NEWS Stonewall officials Michael Milliken (left), Francisco Sanchez and Ron Ennis (for right) met with Vice President Al Gore lost week in Washington, D.C. as both Democratic presidential contenders try to woo the vote of gays. Around the South Gay Democrats from Houston meet with Gore over policies WASHINGTON—Three Texans, including two from Houston, were among 20 gay leaders of the National Stonewall Democratic Federation who met privately - with Vice President Al Gore at his residence on Jan. 20. Gore, who had invited them last month to discuss civil rights and other policy issues, and Bill Bradley, his lone rival for the Democratic presidential nomination, have been fiercely competing for the gay vote in early primaries this year. Bradley is to meet with the Stonewall federation's leaders next month, according to the New York Times. The group, which has about 10,000 members across the country, was formed two years ago to counter the efforts of the more visible Log Cabin Republicans, another gay group. Stonewall Democrats have yet to endorse a candidate for president. The Vice President's campaign is considering supporting a measure to grant two delegate seats to gays in Texas, Stonewall officials said. During the meeting, Gore was also asked to look into an Immigration Naturalization Service policy that does not recognize same-sex relationships. Stonewall officials from Houston included Ron Ennis, the group's treasurer, and Francisco Sanchez, Jr., secretary of the Harris County Democratic Party Texas executes mentally ill gay man who killed lover, four others HUNTSVILLE, Texas (AP)—A gay man who killed his lover and four neighbors was executed Jan. 21, ending a case that death penalty opponents say they used as a test of Gov. George W. Bush's "compassionate conservatism." Larry Keith Robison shot, stabbed and decapitated his lover, Rickey Lee Bryant, 31, then shot and stabbed a neighboring family of four in 1982. Death penalty opponents lobbied Bush to grant the 42-year-old Air Force veteran a one-time reprieve because of his mental illness and called it a test of Bush's presidential campaign theme of "compassionate conservatism." But a Texas appeals court spared Bush from making the decision by canceling the execution and ordering a competency exam. Robison was ruled competent and the execution was rescheduled. Robison, who was diagnosed as paranoid schizophrenic, pleaded innocent by reason of insanity but was convicted. The verdict was overturned, but a 1987 retrial also ended with a death sentence. Give embattled pitcher a chance, suggests Atlanta Braves owner ATLANTA (AP)—Atlanta Braves owner Ted Turner said pitcher John Rocker should be given a chance to redeem himself over his disparaging comments about immigrants, minorities and gay men with AIDS. "He's just a kid," the CNN founder and Time Wamer vice chairman said Jan. 19 on CNN's "Moneyline" of the 25-year-old Rocker. "I think he was off his rocker when he said those things. He's apologized. I don't think we ought to hold it against him forever. Let's give him another chance. I le didn't commit a crime," Turner said. Braves management has said it is awaiting a decision from Major League Baseball on Rocker before determining its own disciplinary actions. In ,\u interview in Sports Illustrated last month, Rocker said he would never play for a New York team because he didn't want to ride a train "next to some queer with AIDS." He also said, "I'm not a very big fan of foreigners." South Ga. military bases discharge 42 last year for being gay SAVANNAH, Ga.—Military bases in south Georgia discharged 42 soldiers and Marines in 1999 for being gay, the Savannah Morning News reported Jan. 23. It's unclear how many of those service members openly acknowledged their homosexuality or whether commanders investigated their sexual orientation. Soldiers live in fear of discovery and expulsion, said an unnamed soldier, from I lunter Army Airfield, who had been teased for having effeminate mannerisms. "There's so many gay soldiers who would do a good job if they didn't have to live in fear," he told the newspaper. "I'm not scared to go into combat, but I'm scared of the soldiers I serve with." To make matters worse, the soldier said, the policy prevents them from reporting harassment. "If we say something, we're going to be investigated/' he told the newspaper. Defense may test evidence in rape and killing of Arkansas boy Bl MOWN I I, Ark. (AP)—Attorneys for one of two gay men charged with the rape and murder of a 13-year-old boy want tests performed oc\ bodily fluids gathered as evidence, I he attorneys for Davis Don Carpenter Jr. also said Jan. 19 that they want more time to prepare arguments against presenting evidence to a jury. Carpenter, 38, and Joshua Macave Brown, 22, are both charged with capital murder and six counts of rape in Jesse Dirkhising's death Sept. 26. 1 he boy was allegedly drugged, bound and gagged, and raped repeatedly al the men's apartment in Rogers, Ark.
