A San Francisco supervisor says he consulted a Ouija board before city leaders voted on whether to recommend naming a Navy ship after slain gay rights activist Harvey Milk.
Supervisor John Avalos said he believes he made contact with
Milk's spirit and that Milk spelled out letters indicating: "Good
riddance to don't ask, don't tell."
The Board of Supervisors approved the non-binding resolution
Tuesday on a 9-2 vote.
Milk was a city supervisor and former naval officer. He was
fatally shot in 1978 by Dan White.
Supporters say the naming would honor the repeal of the `don't
ask, don't tell" law barring open homosexuality in the military.
Opponents say Milk opposed war and it would be inappropriate to
name a warship after him.
