CNS: Democrats Are So Gay

Terry Jeffrey writes in a Nov. 4 "news" article:

Democratic congressional candidates dominated the midterm election vote Tuesday—winning 68 percent--among the 3 percent of the electorate who said they were gay, lesbian or bisexual, according to the exit poll conducted for the major television networks by Edison Research.

By contrast, Republican House candidates won the heterosexual vote, defeating Democrats among this demographic 52 percent to 46 percent.

Jeffrey goes on to write, "Even in San Francisco, however, there were only 8,902 same-sex-couple households out of a total of 329,700 households. That means same-sex-couple households accounted for only 2.7 percent of households in San Francisco, according to the 2000 Census." He adds: "Most of the City of San Francisco is represented in the U.S. House of Representatives by Speaker Nancy Pelosi, whose party lost its majority in the House in Tuesday's election."

To hammer home thatpoint, Jeffrey's article is illustrated with a picture of San Francisco. Nowhere does he explain why he's singling out SF here.

This is not the first time Jeffrey has targeted San Francisco: Last month he devoted a column to how "arts" organizations in San Francisco (Jeffrey's scare quotes, not ours) received stimulus money.
