Michigan Tea Party mayor calls gays "queers"

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

Clearly something in the water in that state. And she's a Tea Partier. From ABC's Chris Bury:

Protesters are planning a rally tonight outside the Troy, Mich., city hall to protest anti-gay remarks made by Mayor Janice Daniels.

Daniels, the newly-elected mayor of one of Detroit’s biggest and most cosmopolitan suburbs, is under fire for making vulgar remarks about gays on her Facebook page. A Tea Party supporter elected last month, she posted a status report in June saying: “I think I am going to throw away my I Love New York carrying bag now that queers can get married there.”
Equally outrageous is the fact that she apparently hasn't figured out that "queers" is kind of old-fashioned, as slurs go, unless of course you're trying out for a part in the remake of "Deliverance."
