“I don’t believe Hurricane Harvey is God’s punishment for Houston electing a lesbian mayor. But that is more credible than ‘climate change,'” Coulter wrote.
Houston, of course, elected the nation’s first openly LGBTQ mayor, Annise Parker, in 2009. However, Parker left office due to term limits in 2015. Houston’s current mayor is Sylvester Turner.

I don't believe Ann Coulter is actually a closeted lesbian but that's more credible than "straight woman"
