Mayor of a small city in Texas (pop. 88,439) quits right after his landslide election to a third term. Reason: he’s in love with a Mexican illegal alien who had to leave the US. Twist: they’re both guys!

The mayor says he’ll stay with his lover in Mexico and try to get him a visa, at which point they’ll return “if the people of San Angelo will welcome me back.” A commenter at the Houston Chronicle says the mayor had already told everyone he was gay. Story, and comments, here.
