"Judge: Anti-Gay Pastor Can Proceed With El Paso Mayoral Recall"

Pastor Tom Brown is trying to recall El Paso mayor John Cook, as well as two of the city’s council members, for supporting domestic partnership benefits, which Brown has said would “reward fornicators.” Cook tried to block the recall, arguing that Brown had used resources from his Word of Life Church to collect signatures for the recall petition, but a judge has allowed the recall —set for April 14 — to proceed.
