New frontiers in political correctness

As Dave Barry says, I'm not making this up:
Mayor quits job for gay
illegal immigrant he loves
. . . Only two weeks after being elected to serve his fourth term, Mayor J.W. Lown of San Angelo submitted his resignation letter Tuesday from an undisclosed location in Mexico. . . .
What made it stunning wasn’t the status of Lown’s office, which pays $600 a year, but the status of his lover.
Lown fell for an illegal Mexican immigrant.
A man.
Lown told the San Angelo Standard-Times he had fallen for the man in March, after he had already filed for re-election. The man came to the U.S. five years ago to study at Angelo State University.
It was unclear whether he had a student visa, but if he did it apparently had expired.
Go read the whole thing, if only to prove to yourself this isn't from Iowahawk. A couple of thoughts:
  1. To quote our hero Gunnery Sgt. Hartman, "Only two things come from Texas," and Mayor Lown is definitely not a steer.
  2. If this doesn't get Mayor Lown a Profile in Courage award and a "genius" grant from the McArthur Foundation, it will at least get him a six-figure book deal, appearances on "The View" and "Oprah," and either a HBO movie deal or a reality series on VH-1.
Via Memeorandum.
