A week later he was still refusing to apologize for his remarks - and even went as far as to say George Washington and Abraham Lincoln would have agreed with his bigotry. It seems that Mayor Al Krieger isn't familiar with Lincoln's history of male bedmates, or his poetry condoning gay marriage.
Mayor Krieger finally made the least apologetic apology ever, last Friday:
In a phone interview with the Yuma Sun Friday afternoon, Krieger apologized to the gay community.
“As mayor I must respect the lifestyle choices of others, no matter how disagreeable they are with my personal beliefs or my personal moral standards.”
I'm betting the gay community is just thrilled to hear that the mayor respects their disagreeable, immoral lifestyles.
