Shock Video: IV Landlord's Homophobic Rant

ICYMI: Over at, Kelsey Brugger has posted a stunning, and sickening, story recounting how IV landlord James Gelb unloosed a bellowing, homophobic tirade upon Community Services District President Ethan Bertrand, a gay man, when the two encountered each other on State Street on election night. This is no he-said-he-said confrontation: the episode, which Kelsey reports SBPD is now investigating, was recorded in a 90-second smart phone video that's posted with her story, and has to be seen to be believed. For shame.
