Nearly two-thirds of Spokane voters voted to show Mayor James E. West the door in special recall election. Personally, I won't be losing any sleep over it. West, who as described himself as being "asexual," has constantly voted against equality for Gays in the Legislature and as the mayor of Spokane.
A couple weeks before he was 'outed' by the Spokesman Review, he even opposed domestic partner benefits for city employees. He is certainly no friend of our community. Now, he will have plenty of time to sort out his sexuality and the Gay community won't have to suffer for it.
