Officers Raid Chicago Gay Bar From "Chicago's Gay Life" Police staged a raid on Carol's Speakeasy, a Chicago gay bar, Sept. 12, initially arresting two people but taking photos and intensely interrogating some 40 customers. Correspondent Tracy Bairn said more than a dozen men came in the front and back doors, "guns pointed and flashlights shining." The raid was staged by the Metropolitan Enforcement Group, an Illinois agency formed to combat illegal drugs. Patrons and employees were forced to lie on the floor, some more than an hour. Several officers called the customers names, including "...sucker" and "faggot" Customers, one by one, were forced to answer questions, giving place of employment, marital status, home address and mother's name. Frank Gomilla, director of the northeastern division of the Metropolitan Enforcement Group, said the raid was held to arrest people on warrants after a three-month investigation into drug trafficking. Carol's manager, David Boyer, said at first he thought the club was being robbed when the officers—wearing rubber gloves—did not clearly identify themselves. A mayor's assistant, the ACLU and private attorneys were investigating the incident.

"We will be endorsing candidates with conservative views on economic issues and progressive (liberal) thoughts on social issues. And as in past years, we may endorse more than one candidate in a single race, and no candidate at all in some races."
