EXPOSED! Lesbian Houston Mayor’s Claims of Discrimination are a BIG LIE
Houston’s openly lesbian mayor, Annise Parker, recently gained notoriety for abusing her power to harass Christian churches. Now, she’s been caught telling tall tales about her daughter being denied a driver’s license “because she has two moms.”
Houston Mayor Annise Parker (D) announced Thursday that the Texas Department of Public Safety had barred her daughter from taking a driving test because the daughter has two moms. Parker, who is the first openly gay mayor of a major U.S. city, wed her longtime partner in January. Parker took to Twitter late Thursday to express her frustration. Daughter needs drivers test. Has all docs, some in MomA name, some MomK, but w/ birth cert showing both. DPS says can only be from 1 mom!-A — Annise Parker
But it looks like this is yet another faux hate crime. The Department of Public Safety director quickly refuted Parker’s claims, writing in a statement, “All individuals applying for their first Texas driver license must provide a variety of documents to prove their identity… In this case, the adult applicant did not initially present sufficient documentation to prove residency. Once she provided the required documentation, she was able to complete the transaction. There is no indication that any delay in the process was related to same-sex marriage.”
It seems like for every victim of a genuine hate incident, there are two or three others who spin these stories just to get their 15 minutes of fame, showered with attention and sympathy for their plight.
From now on, can the media at least do some basic fact-checking before publishing a hoax story?
