Help Mike Jones

My buddy Joe has started a fund-raising drive for Mike Jones, the hustler-with-a-heart-of-gold who brought down Ted Haggard and may well have helped the Dems retake congress at substantial risk to himself both in the form of criminal prosecution, and by risking the reprisals of those peace-loving Evangelicals, who have issued death threats.

Joe points out that Mike is currently unemployed, and probably unemployable (at least for the moment). He's afraid (justifiably) of continuing to see clients(for happy endings or otherwise).

So he needs (and deserves) some help from those of us who are grateful he spoke up when and how he did. Remember, exit polls indicate conclusively that the "culture of corruption" argument ranked higher even than the Iraq War in terms of voters' concerns... and Haggard certainly qualifies in that regard.

Bottom line (as Joe put it so well): if you saw Mike Jones in a bar, you'd want to buy him a drink, right?

So link to PayPal's payment screen and send some well-earned cash to Jones at:

Besides giving Mike money and buying him drinks at a bar, we, gay men should offer him a full time job so that he can survive and be on his own in the long run. Where is David Geffen? What has he been doing recently? Why has he NOT extended his hand and offer his help? Besides David, what about those gay organizations and those wealthy gay men????????????

Maybe Jeff Gannon could pitch in?

Whaddya mean, that would be a stupid idea?
