Accused of proverbially selling out gays, Philly gym owner literally sells out company stake

by Jeremy Hooper

Responding to the protests and intended boycott from local gay activists, the president of Philadelphia's 12th Street Gym has bought out owner Robert Guzzardi.

As you might remember, Guzzardi was under fire from the Liberty City Dems for financially supporting politicians with an anti-gay voting record, such as Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum. Responsively, we hear new owner Rick Piper will not so much as give a stick of gum to a student council candidate, should said candidate find Ellen Degeneres' comedy uninspired or feel that "Will & Grace" has run its course. Better safe than boycotted.

We'd like to say congrats, Lib City Dems, on successfully standing up for your beliefs. Now if you could just find a way to make the gym less necessary, that'd be fantastic.

VICTORY RALLY!! [Liberty City Dems]
