Rev. Howard Bess was the author of the book "Pastor, I Am Gay" and says Sarah Palin tried to have his book removed from the library in 1995. "She scares me" stated Pastor Bess "She's Jerry Falwell with a pretty face."
He states his book was on the "hit list" and "I'm as certain of that as I am that I'm sitting here. This is a small town, we all know each other. People in city government have confirmed to me what Sarah was trying to do."
Bess says Palin was at the heart of a drive to take over the local hospital's community board to abolish abortion in the valley. After they succeeded Bess and the local OB-GYN had to fight in the highest state court to give women their choice back.
