Transcript HOUSTON VOICE • DECEMBER 17, 1999 NEWS An aide to Texas Gov. George W. Bush says gay Republicans have been too critical ol the GOP presidential frontrunner Around the South Judge sides with Houston school district in HIV discrimination suit HOUSTON—A federal judge has ruled that an applicant for a teacher's position in the Houston Independent School District was rejected because of a low test score, not because he was HIV-positive, the Houston Chronicle reported Dec. 10. U.S. District Judge Vanessa Gilmore, in a written decision, said applicant William Ellsworth "did not disclose his HIV status to the district at any time" during his application process. "We're very pleased with the outcome of the court case," HISD spokesman Terry Abbott said. "He was not hired because he fell far below our minimum test-score requirement. We didn't know that he was HIV (positive)." During a two-day trial last week, Ellsworth, 51, tried to convince Gilmore that HISD discriminated against him and violated the Americans with Disabilities Act. Ellsworth, who has a master's degree and taught in HISD for five years in the 1980s, claimed HISD did know about his medical condition because a principal was aware he is gay and that his partner died of AIDS. Bush aide says Log Cabin Republicans too critical of candidate WASHINGTON—Texas Gov. George W. Bush's top campaign strategist defended the Republican presidential frontrunner's decision to snub leaders of the Log Cabin Republicans, asserting that the gay Republican group had been critical of Bush on several issues, the Neio York Times reported Dec. 10. The strategist, Karl Rove, said the group's leaders have asked for meetings with Bush "with the stated purpose of coming in and explaining why Governor Bush is wrong on gay adoption or why he is wrong on broadening the Texas hate-crimes bill." Rove added that the governor has "a limited amount of time, and we're just not going to set aside right now a time to meet with [Log Cabin leaders] and talk about their dialogue," Rove said. Rich Tafel, the Log Cabin's executive director, said Bush "has created what has become a confrontational situation. We have now heard five different reasons why they won't meet with us." Kentucky legislature, federal courts to rule on gay rights laws LOUISVILLE—Two Northern Kentucky lawmakers have announced a bipartisan push to prohibit local governments from enacting ordinances designed to prevent discrimination against gays, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported Dec. 10. Reps. Tom Kerr, a Democrat, and Joe Fischer, a Republican, say they will co-sponsor the bill during the General Assembly session that begins Jan. 4. Meanwhile, the ACLU has petitioned a federal court in Louisville to join in defending against a lawsuit to overturn gay rights laws in Louisville and Jefferson County. Dr. J. Barrett Hyman, the doctor who filed the suits, is being represented by the American Center for Law and Justice, founded by conservative televangelist Pat Robertson. Hyman contends that complying with the ordinance interferes with his Christian beliefs. The ACLU said similar religious arguments were used to fight federal and state civil-rights laws in the 1960s and 70s Openly gay S.C. prosecutor to face well-funded GOP challenger CHARLESTON (AP)—Republican challenger Ralph Hoisington has amassed a campaign war chest of more than $50,000 to run against openly gay incumbent prosecutor David Schwacke, who has accumulated only $1,600 for next June's primary. It will be Schwacke's first re-election effort since acknowledging he is gay after he was charged with using his office computer during business hours to solicit sex on the Internet. After an investigation, a grand jury refused to indict Schwacke. Hoisington said he has no intention of making Schwacke's sexual orientation a campaign issue. At least two Democrats are also considering entering the race. Sheriff criticized again for anti-gay views on county web-site FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP)—Lee County Sheriff John McDougall is under fire again for posting conservative personal views on the office web-site, this time weighing in on the alleged murder of a teen-ager by two gay men and China taking over the Panama Canal. The text compares the publicity generated by the death of Matthew Shepard and the rape, torture and murder of a 13-year-old Arkansas boy, lesse Dirkhising, allegedly at the hands of two gay men. "Are the liberal media and their pro-homosexual agenda trying to persuade us into believing that a hate crime is only a hate crime when the victim is gay?" McDougall's first letter posted on the Internet in October criticized the ACLU, gay groups and pro-choice supporters. —From staff and wire reports If you are seriously ill, money shouldn't be an added source of stress.
