BANKS: WHAT ELSE WILL SHE DO TO HELP GENE LOCKE WIN!
Press Release: The Houston GLBT Political Caucus sent a letter to Mayor Bill White asking how Houston voters can trust that their voice will be heard when the election administrator, County Clerk Beverly Kaufman, has already weighed in on who she wants to win this election. The Caucus also sent a letter to County Attorney Vince Ryan, requesting an opinion on the legality of Ms. Kaufman’s continued administration of this election.
“Beverly Kaufman has not only stated her support of Gene Locke, she has been actively campaigning for him. What else is she willing to do to make sure he gets elected?” said Kris Banks, president of the Caucus. “We want our votes to be counted, and we don’t know if we can trust Ms. Kaufman to do that.”
The Caucus membership unanimously voted to send the letters at the October 7 meeting, upon a motion made and seconded by members.
“Although our organization supports Annise Parker for mayor, this is about the integrity of this election,” Banks said. “For the greater good of this city, we need to know that whoever wins the election won it fairly, and not have a redux of Florida in the 2000 presidential race.”
The Houston GLBT Political Caucus is the oldest organization in the South advocating for the civil rights of the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community.
