Carl DeMaio and his team were gathering signatures to recall Sen. Josh Newman during Pride weekend in a Walmart parking lot in Fullerton, when a local Democratic party official accosted them with curse words.
He walked up and demanded to know:
“Which one of you ---holes is the gay?”
The bully is Jeff LeTourneau, a Vice-Chair with the Democratic Party of Orange County. LeTourneau, who is gay, discovered that gay volunteers were helping the effort to recall Newman and this made him irate.
“LeTourneau clearly thinks that if you are gay, you can only be a Democrat which is both arrogant and highly offensive. The idea that Californians are sick of paying higher taxes cuts across party lines and sexual orientation.”
LeTourneau, Newman, and the Democratic Party of Orange County Chair Fran Sdao have not commented on what happened.
