San Luis Obispo County Supervisor Adam Hill sent a bizarre email Friday afternoon suggesting a local critic’s marriage is a sham and that the critic is attracted to Hill. As a county supervisor, Hill was passed over in January for chairman of the board of supervisors because of his frequent outbursts and strange rants.
Over the past few days, Hill has written several Facebook posts claiming San Luis Obispo resident Keith Gurnee has a homosexual interest in him. In response to a Cal Coast Times article about Hill’s earlier allegations, Hill sent Gurnee an email from his official county email account suggesting Gurnee is secretly homosexual.
In the past, Hill has apologized multiple times for attacking people who question or disagree with him. After public scrutiny, Hill often refers to his posts and emails as satire or jokes. Even so, some members of the community have voiced their concerns.
“Sordid, unprofessional, uncalled for, maybe there should be a grand jury inquiry into the performance/conduct of BOS!,” Lynne Newhouse responded to Hill’s rant on Facebook.
Hill’s Friday afternoon email to Keith Gurnee:
“T. Bone, you little minx. It’s 2017! Everything is fluid now, no longer will your patriarchal controls be accepted by most humans! Lighten up, you’re no doubt attractive and even intelligible (not necessarily intelligent) to some—especially trolls with the same ugly old-fashioned impulses as you ! Why must you obsess over one human (me) who doesn’t dig your prescriptions?
“I tried to let you down easy but you crave something I won’t and can’t give you. When you continue to obsess over me and accuse me of a variety of crimes and mismeanors and then have to get some wrecked/wretched blogger to carry out your garbage, all I see is a big bulbous, hilariously pompous sack of woe who needs to be hugged. A lot. Lots of hugs, T. Bone. You are one sad/mad hombre.
“Alas, I must tell you again I am not interested in your affections no matter how you disguise them in your uniquely enigmatic manner of yawping. No matter how low you go, I will not give into your mysterious charms, though certainly there are others, especially the broken souls who have discovered anonymity has a friendship circle waiting in any online forum. What I am suggesting, is you look for love in the right places, T. Bone, those places where you can be accepted for who you are even if who you are is but a lie you’ve been telling yourself for 70 years.
“Good luck and Godspeed, my little poisonous angel. Should you ever need a book recommendation or the name of good pizzaria in New Jersey, then feel free to contact me. (Actually, the satire applies to that too… it’s so difficult to say goodbye to one who obsesses so literally as to wet himself into words he must then see printed…but ta-ta.)”
Gurnee’s email response:
“Stunning stuff Adam. And you and Bruce are the two backing Jimmy Paulding. What does that say about him??? You’re really damaging his chances with this tripe.
“It’s sad to see anyone devolve into this, even you. You started this nonsense on Slosense. I suggest you cease and desist and get some help.”
Hill did not respond to a request for comment.
