Porterville City Council ousts mayor, vice mayor over gay-rights support | VIDEO

PORTERVILLE, Calif. -- The Porterville city council ousted its mayor and vice mayor Tuesday night.

In a 3 to 2 vote Tuesday, Mayor Virginia Gurrula and Vice Mayor Pete McCracken were ousted by the council majority.

Gurrula says she wasn't surprised with outcome, given her recent support of gay rights issues.

Supporters of Gurrola say there was no reason to remove her from her post as mayor. But they say her position to support a proclamation designating the month of June as LGBT pride month, is the reason behind the shakeup.
