" SCOtt says the clerk also said the ne-1.isletter couldn' t [7Jssibly ba ready W'ltil the rnicklle of the next ~. which directly contra'licted what she had ~ told over the telepfx)ne. "She asked roo , 'Are you going tote very upset? ' " SCOtt rcprrts . "I told her, ' I \o.OUI.d.'"l't feel can­fortable leaving it here.

"It expressly forbids discri.-nination on the basis of sexual orientation a.""rl this is clearly discrimination."

':"'EX1'S DrM'.:CRATS OPPOSE A!-ITI - SC.XX:X1'i LAN The Texas Derrocratic Party officially adopted a gay rights plank calling for the repeal of Section 21 .

The lesbian/Gay Dcrrocrats of Texas (LGLfl') and thClI sui:p:>rters w.trked very hard to include the plank, which was rejected at the first Texas Dcmr cratic convention, enrlier this year. The victory is a culrn.inaUon of eight years of vJOrk within the p.-:i.rty. iwr leaders credit the Carter Ca.'Tpaign with essential bcllind- the- scenes assistance in !ringing the plank to foe floor for a vote.

Several lesbian/gay p..iblicat:i.ons, :including ca:.;:!EX:l'I<l\S, received a 11ne\'1S release," p..IrIX>rtedly fran "The First Universal Life Church of Houston," \olhich i!tplied Michael H. Driscoll , DeITocratic caroidate for the offit.~ of COW'lty Attorney of Harris County, was a rabid OCt!oprol::e ·,iro v.ould devote all his energy and the resources of his office to the persecution of torosexuals . This is a flat-out lie. A Houston Gay Political CauclJS representative de­scri~ Driscoll us a "big gay sup[X)rter. " Jim Evins, a Houston attorney associated with Driscoll' s canpaign, characterized the incident as a "crank letter. " Evins told CO.:-l!\'ECrIGJS , "Mike is not given to doing crazy stuff. He and the Gay Political Caucus support each other." "The Universal Life Church is the original muil order diplana mill, " Evins continuecl. "For $S, }Ull can l:ecare a minister. A rxx::tor of Divinity and the ability to 1:ecare a bisrop goes for S2C. You can becarc a Saint for SSC. If you want yoor cat to 1::e Saint Cat, scrrl them SSC. They don' t care." Evins isn' t sure the ULC is even associated with the letter. "We called the church's p00nc numLcr and got no a~. Their only cd:lress is a post offi.Cc l:ox. We sus­p;: x:t the letter carre out of Mike's oppJncnt' s canpaign. Ron Deere was a ~ of Young Jl.:tcric<ms f-or Frccdan fifteen years ago a'1d he ' s still very conservative. Mike' s a pretty devout guy. He goes to church a couple of t1r.es a nonth and this has hfal upset and annoyed." It was feared that the letters had tccn widely mailed, l:ut according to Evins, "It' s only surfaced a couple of t.irrcs so far. " .NTrl-GAY CAMPAIG:ER DEFEATED A candidate wro rrounted a cwpaign OJ?FOsing lesbian/gay rights was defeated at the Texas State Derrocratic convention in Houston on Scptcmmr 27 , 198C. David Sanuelson, a conservative c;andidclte for Texas Detocratic Party Chair, sent letters to dele­gates fran all over the state which criticize:! the t.i.n'e spent debating lesbian/gay rights at the San Antonio convention in June of 198C. At that titre , a resolution calling for repeal of Section 21 .C6 of the Texas Penal COde (the "antl- scxbny" law) was narrowly defeated. Sarruelson is a ncnJ:er of the Travis county CCJmli.ssio:lers Coo.rt woo is rot rurming f-or re­election. Jimny Snell, e.'1dorsed Vj the Austin Lesbian Gay Political Caucus, is running for the scat vacated Vj Sao;uelson. Descrfrcd Vj AtGPC co-chair ScOtty ScOtt as a reactionary with "sare following airong agricul­tural fA.."'Ople , that ' s all," Sanuelson received one percent of the vote for state Party Chair. The party plank calling for the repeal of 21 . C6 passed in Houston, putting the Te.xas Deno­cratic Party on record as opr:osing the state' s intrusion into private sexual matters . 1\IJSTINITES ELEL'TED TO 'I.DP I.G1I' rosfS Three> Austinitcs have reen electe::l to top Off­ices in the Lesbia'l/Gay Denocrats of Texas .

It is unusual for vice officers to part.it:ipate in drug raids.

"Since I 'm not gay arrl don ' t dri.111< alcohol, this W<lS just another waste of the taxpayers ' rroney, " Berkman says.

JOHN ANDERSON Indepcroent Joh.'1 AndersOn has actively courted the lesbian/gay vote, speaking to gay g-coups and ming interv~ by gay p..iblicaticms, such as 'IliIS WEEK IN TEXAS. Representative Anderson has e."Xklrsed a bill which ....ould forbid discri.'ni..n.ation due to sexual ori - cnt.ation in rousing a."rl enpl.oyrre."lt, especially federal e::ployrrent. He oP£X)SCd COngress::a"'! Larry r~·s first a."lti-gay airendr.ent to the Legal Services cori:oratiOn Bill in 1977. A."Xierson says, "Congress ought to oo ready to enact legislation that r...o.tl.d IT'akc it clear that the gay carrrunity sOOuld rot te na:le to suffer discrimination in fa.l.si."g, mploym:mt and opp;Jrtu.'liti.cs in society generally." He further states, "The State has m rosiness interfering in a private, consensual relationship." Anderson has admitted that he retains llUlCh of his conservative philosophy, rut L"1Sists he has seen the error of many of his early reliefs. He has never specifically addressed his three attempts, in his early days in Congress, to intro::luce a con­stitutional llITenclrrcnt recognizing "Jesus Christ as the Spiritual Father of our country." Tre latest national fOlls give Anderson 9% of the vote and re OChl seems u.'11.ikely to carry a single st.ate. An :AFL-<:IO p:>ll released i.'1 mid--O::to­mr gives him 4% of the vote in Texas, trailing F.d Clark.

The Citizen's Party phiJ.osOFhy is a canbination of socialist and lil::ert.arinn. cernoner t-.as approx.iJTiately 1 percent of the vote natio:1ally. He isn't on the ballot in Texas. ED CLARK F.d Clark, the Limrtaria.'1 Party candidclte says, "The right to love the person you want ;a­gardless of gender, seems to r.e a very basic' frccdcr:i. I can ' t u."rlerstand the rrcntali ty of a person \'ro wuld try to deny that right. 11 Clark states re is totally opp:>sej to 50::loo¥ lcn-is a."Xl w;J1.ll.d r~ than as soon as he was elected. When he was ruruung for Ciovernor of California in 1978, Clarie canpaigned agalnSt the Briggs Initiative. "I ran radio, television and newspaper ads highlighting my q:p::>sition , I insisted that gay people have the sarre right to teach in the public sci"o:>ls as any other A'fericans. At the sarrc tirrc, I l::elieve that ~ents \-.ho, to.-~ver wrongly, don' t want gays teaching their children, have a right to select schools of their d~ice . 'That's shy I've prop:>sed a system of education tax ere.lits to allow m.:>re students b? ch:::losc the kind of school they wunt." Clark prcm.i.Ses, "As President, I \.iould ;i.ntrodi­ately issue an executive order banning discr.imination agai..'1St gays in the military and other governricnt erploymmt, '' Clark also o~es sexual preference discrimin­ation in child-custody cases and in imn.i.gration. In fact, he Qf.P:)ses gQVern:':'ent intervention in ahrost any phase of a person' s private life. "In the Nhite House Conferen:e on Families, for ex.anple you have a situation >-mere different w:ouP5 feel they have to fight for control of saro gc:>vernm:mt prpograre.

Freedcxn is for everyl:ody • II Essentially, the Litertarin Platfonn is redu­cing govcrment intervention in private matters . Clark wants to transfer rrost govcrnrrcnt services to thc private sector, repeal: all laws t.""Oncerning private, consensual conduct, recluce U.S. military intervention abroad, and substitute private rctirc­rrcnt plans for SOcial Security. "I'm prorXlsing to cut every A!rerican's taxes in half and cut govmn­rent sperrling at the sarre tine. " Ed Clark t-.as al::out 3 percent of the vote, nationally.

Reagan ' s QpFOSition, on hw.an rights grOUnds, to the anti- h:llosexual Briggs Initiative in Cali­fornia in 1978, was a key factor in its defeat. Many feel he .is secretly sy:rpathetic to gays l:ecause of his long association with them in soow b.lsiness. Ho.-icvcr, a report released by the Houston Gay Political Caucus concludes, "Reaga.'1' s candidacy presents serious problem; for those interested in leBbian airl gay rights." Reagan told th:? Christian Association magazine, "I do not oolievc society should reco:JlUZC or a:::cept ho11osexuality as a so-called 'alternate life- style,"' in 1979.
