San Francisco city attorney has an amazing response to anti-gay hate group that sued over urinals

Published

on

A Christian group is suing the city of San Francisco over public urinals at a huge municipal park known for nearly-nude sunbathers, among other “adult” activities, according to SFGate.

But City Attorney Dennis Herrera seems to think the litigation is, if not funny, at least ridiculous. The lawsuit, filed by the San Francisco Chinese Christian Union, complains that the pissiors, as they are called, don’t have hand-washing facilities, aren’t accessible to those with disabilities and are in full public view on a busy street near a train stop.

“If I had to predict the top 100 things in Dolores Park likely to offend these plaintiffs, I wouldn’t have guessed that this would make the cut,” his spokesman, Matt Dorsey, said in a press release.

The press release notes that the Christian group is designated an anti-LGBT hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, and continues, “Dolores Park—located between the city’s diverse and colorful Castro and Mission neighborhoods—ranks number 1 on Yelp among San Francisco’s best nude parks. For years, the popular 16-acre destination has been well-known for its vibrant counter culture, immodest sunbathers, pot brownie vendors, spectacular city views, and famously irreverent ‘Hunky Jesus’ contest, which is sponsored annually by the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence.”

The lawsuit says the urinals are not within plumbing codes.

“Women and girls would be subject to extreme embarrassment in a measure not experienced by men or boys who merely unzip their trousers and aim at the whole [sic] when urinating,” the suit says.

The park is not exactly known for being tame. It’s been slated the “best nude park” in San Francisco by Yelp users.

“Definitely a adult oriented park,” one Yelper wrote. “I see people smoking pot, drinking, an sunbathing practically nude.”

According to SFGate, the urinals were installed as part of a park-wide renovation, and were meant to address a shortage of bathroom facilities that led to urinating in places like neighbors’ homes.

GOP appointees considered disloyal to Trump won’t be spared as president’s new hatchet-man begins purge: report

Published

on

According to a report from the New York Times, longtime government employees who landed their jobs because of their Republican bonafides are now coming to work each day with the threat of dismissal hanging over their heads if it is believed they are are not totally on board with Donald Trump policies.

Following a report that Johnny McEntee, a 29-year-old loyalist just installed to take over the Office of Presidential Personnel, is instructing "departments to search for people not devoted to the president so they can be removed," the Times notes that just because a staffer is a Republican in good standing doesn't mean that won't be booted.

Here is why these Nevadans are betting on Sanders

Published

on

LAS VEGAS — Any doubts that Nevadans wouldn't show up for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) were quickly squashed by the amount of people lined up to get into his Friday night rally in Las Vegas on the eve of the Nevada caucus: an estimated 2,020, according to his campaign. One would have been forgiven for assuming the crowd spilling out the main entrance and down the street had lined up to get into one of the city's hottest shows, not a "Get Out the Vote" event. Despite stereotypes that Sanders only draws support from the young (and mostly white), the crowd was visibly diverse in age, ethnicity and race. And anyone who didn't arrive already wearing the requisite Bernie gear had plenty of opportunities to buy some as they waited to enter the venue.

Roger Stone’s dream of booting judge for sentencing comments brutally crushed by ex-US Attorney: ‘He’s met his match’

Published

on

Appearing on MSNBC on Saturday afternoon, former U.S. Attorney Joyce Vance crushed any hopes former Donald Trump associate Roger Stone might have that his prison sentence will be voided due to comments made by the presiding judge in his federal trial.

Speaking with host Alex Witt, Vance left no doubt Stone's latest legal gambit will collapse just like his previous attempts to squirm out of his trial did.

"Stone's legal team says that Judge Amy Berman Jackson's assertion that the jurors served with integrity shows bias," host Witt stated. "Do you buy that argument and legally would that be enough to get the judge dismissed from the case?"
