Four years ago, a bright young presidential candidate named Barack Obama campaigned on a theme of hope and change, and made history.

Texas GOP councilwoman Elisa Chan and her staff caught comparing homosexuality to incest, pedophilia.

A secret recording was leaked to the press this Thursday revealing a conversation between a San Antonio Texas GOP councilwoman and her staff — in which the discussion deteriorated into a chorus of harsh anti-gay rhetoric.

James Stevens, who is an aide to San Antonio District 9 Council Woman Elisa Chan, leaked the audio to the San Antonio Express-News, which he secretly recorded during a May 21 meeting in Chan’s office to discuss an approaching non-discrimination ordinance.

However, the nearly 16-minute audio reveals a discussion where staffers compare homosexuality to incest and pedophila, with Chan stating her opinion that gays are “disgusting to even think about.” In addition to her revulsion towards the LGBT community, Chan can be heard saying that she believes being gay is a choice and that gay people should not adopt children.
