The former head of the Office of Special Counsel “wanted to ‘ship out’” ALL the agency’s gay employees to Detroit, according to a government report released Wednesday.
Special Counsel Scott Bloch, who served under the Bush administration from 2003 to 2007, established a field office in Detroit and reassigned several gay employees to the new location. But there is no evidence that those reassignments “were taken for a legitimate business purpose of the agency,” according to the report released by Inspector General Patrick McFarland.
“Mr. Bloch and his immediate staff offered an array of ostensible explanations [for the reassignments] in press releases, Congressional testimony, and interviews with the investigative team, seeking to link the reassignments to the bona fide operational needs of the agency,” the report stated. “However, our investigation developed evidence which tended to undermine the proffered explanations.”
The report suggests the reassignments were instead based on anti-gay sentiments.
Richard Trefry, a government contractor, told investigators that Bloch “spontaneously explained” his desire to “ship out” a number of gay employees. Bloch allegedly told him he “HAD A LICENSE TO DO THIS.”
NO, NO, I DON’T.

New York’s Cardinal Timothy Dolan says the Roman Catholic Church has been “OUTMARKETED” on the issue of gay marriage and has been “caricatured as being anti-gay.”
Dolan’s conversation with “Meet the Press” moderator David Gregory will air Sunday on NBC.
Asked why the church is losing the argument on gay marriage, Dolan says it’s a tough battle when forces like Hollywood, politicians and “some opinion-molders” are on the other side.
But he said the gay marriage debate is not over and the church will not give up on it.
On another divisive issue, Dolan said the Catholic Church has long championed comprehensive health care.
But he indicated that U.S. Catholic bishops cannot support the Affordable Care Act as long as it includes coverage for abortion.
Your anti-women, and anti-minorties, and anti-youth, and anti-LGBT; resulted in you losing in 2o12.
Since then, the GOP positions have become even more abhorant; and you will lose by an even BIGGER MARGIN in 2016.
SIMPLE FACT: too damb dumb to learn!

“We won’t be the last political party to overplay our hand. It might happen one day on the Democratic side.
And if it did, would Republicans, for the good of the country, kinda give a little?
We really did go too far. We screwed up.
But their response is making things worse, not better.”

“It’s a GOOD THING 800,000 can now go back to work, and we didn’t default.”
Yeah, that’s terrible!

Police in Tacoma are looking for a man who robbed a bank last week wearing a flowery dress. They have released a surveillance photo, hoping somebody might recognize him.
The hold-up happened at about 4pm on Wednesday. The man walked into a Key Bank branch and handed a teller a note demanding cash. He then left the bank with an undisclosed amount of money.
No one was injured. The robber is a white man in his 40s, 6-foot-3 and 190 pounds.
He was wearing a light brown wig, tan makeup, large sunglasses, a white long-sleeved shirt and a long dark blue sleeveless flowery dress. (heels? don’t know)
