Last week, Lavender, an LGBT-focused magazine published in Minneapolis, came out with its 2013 city election endorsements

Some commenters on Lavender's post are upset about that endorsement because they think it's too critical of Hodges's views about a possible municipal energy utility. But openly gay, Saran Wrap-loving darkhorse candidate Stephanie Woodruff
is miffed because she thinks Minneapolis's leading LGBT publication shouldn't have overlooked her sexuality when making the choice.More »
