Portrait of a Bigot - Florida Politician Clay Yarborough

Is bigot too strong a word to use for Clay Yarborough? Well let his words answer that for you. In an interview with the Times-Union here were a couple of his responses.
Just in general, do you believe Muslims should be able to hold any public office in Florida?
“I don’t know.”

Do you think homosexuals should be able to hold a public office in Florida
“I would prefer they did not.”
Yarborough, city councilperson in Jacksonville, has attempted to block a Muslim and an openly gay woman form the city's Human Rights Commission. Talk about wanting to stack the deck!
