The power elite are fine with gay people. They courted San Angelo Mayor J.W. Lown, before he left public service to be with his undocumented gay lover. While lobbying on behalf of our local Air Force base, Lown learned Washington D.C. is run by gays. In a Biblical like moment, a Satanic lobbyist dangled John Cornyn's Senate seat before J.W.'s eyes. Lown turned him down.
The business sector is similarly supportive. After British tabloids revealed Lord John Browne's gay lover, The Carlyle Group’s energy joint venture hired the BP CEO, fresh off the Texas City refinery explosion. Ken Mehlman works for Kohlberg Kravis Roberts (KKR), a private equity underwriter (PEU). KKR won’t miss a greed inspired beat over Ken’s gay status.
Connections matter to the power elite, not sexual orientation.
