Sen. Forrester dug a 'cesspool'; still digging

by Jeremy Hooper

Screen Shot 2011-09-14 At 4.46.43 PmLast week, North Carolina state senator Jim Forrester (Very Far R-41) used the phrase "cesspool of sin" to describe the city of Asheville and the need for the state to pass the marriage discrimination bill that he championed. Now that the legislative face-slap has passed, Forrester (non)explains what he meant by the comment:

“It was kind of brought up in a church meeting we had and I don’t know what prompted me to say that, but I distinctly remember a couple of weeks ago they were all out baring their breasts and everything up in Asheville,” Forrester said. “They have a lot of very liberal people. They have a lot of homosexuals that live in the Asheville area.”

Forrester continued: “I think, it used to be you think of Wilmington with all the movie people down there would be the worst place in the state or Chapel Hill where they have a lot of liberal people and so forth. But Asheville is just doing a lot of things that I don’t like and I don’t think a lot of people in the Asheville area like.”

Those darn liberals. So hard to know which of your state's cities they're "cesspooling" up this week!

No word on what label Sen. Forrester might give to Charlotte when the Democratic convention comes to town in 2012. Both "sewer" and "septic tank" are said to be in the running, though the final choice is any sinner's guess.
