Gay Fort Worth City Councilman Joel Burns appeared on MSNBC’s The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell on Wednesday night to discuss the string of teen suicides in GOP presidential candidate Michele Bachmann’s Minnesota congressional district. (For some background on this issue, check out this piece from Mother Jones the other day.) Following the appearance, Burns said on Twitter that he planned to send Bachmann an email because there were a few points he wasn’t able to get across on the air. And on a lighter note, Burns also apparently won an argument with his husband, J.D. Angle, about whether he would shave his beard before the show.
