So Elisa Chan, the San Antonio City Council member who was slammed for a secret recording that expressed her extreme views on homosexuality, responded this week to the critics, in a statement her office shared with a local San Antonio TV news channel:


The comments from the staff meeting on May 21st were and are my personal opinions and thoughts as guaranteed to me by the 1st amendment to the U.S. Constitution. It is unfortunate that a former member of my D9 Council team betrayed the trust of my staff members and me. I will fight, I will always fight for our freedom of speech, especially in a private setting.
