WFB: Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg may want to get his supporters to the polls, but his refusal to bring them to a pole is drawing the ire of some in the LGBT community.
The former South Bend, Ind., mayor’s campaign canceled a fundraiser at Dark Lady, a gay Rhode Island nightclub, following a dispute over the presence of a stripper pole, according to the venue.
Dark Lady’s manager told WPRI that campaign staffers asked the club to remove the pole before the event. When the club refused, staffers canceled the fundraiser. “We guess this is what the gay candidate does to the gay community! #downonthepoles #dancersforanyoneelse,” the owners complained on Facebook. “We’re open, we’re here, we’re queer, get over it!” more here
