Virginia RNC Delegates Offended by teh Gay

The Rake publishes a Secrets of the City guide for RNC visitors. Folks from Virginia order copies for their delegation. Someone reviews it and, upon discovering the section on gay stuff to do, cancels their order.

Original cancellation request e-mail from Melissa Busse, Bolling’s political director sent to Tom Bartel, of The Rake:

I am so terribly sorry to do this, especially when the both of you have been so “out of your way” helpful, generous and easy to work with. But, we need to cancel the order for 150 of the “Secrets of the City” guidebooks.

Thanks for sending a copy to me so expediently, Tom. Upon looking at it, though, having a section dedicated solely to GLBT will be a BIG problem for many of our folks. We simply can’t hand them out.

Please still bill us for the copy sent along with shipping, though.

Again, I’m so sorry.

Yeah, I’m sorry, too.

(Wait, Tom Bartel was “easy to work with”?!)
