I'm sorry, while I do find his actions to be appalling if true, I'm struggling to understand what on Earth this has to do with him being anti-gay.
And I'm guessing the link to the pyramid story was a mistake?
Silva has been under investigation for alleged sexual misconduct multiple times, even before he was sworn in as mayor in 2013. When he was a high school water polo coach in 2004, Silva was accused of secretly taping teens in the bathroom of his apartment. Charges were never filed.
Authorities also investigated Silva in 2011 for an alleged rape attempt on a 19-year-old woman when he was president of the Boys and Girls club. In this case, prosecutors did not press charges due to lack of evidence.
The mayor could face more legal trouble after a gun stolen from his rental home in 2015 was used in two crimes, including the murder of a 13-year-old boy.
Silva says it was stolen from his home. However, he didn’t report the theft until a month after Harris’ death.
The Stockton district attorney’s office says Silva refused to talk to investigators about the missing gun for weeks.
