Beit Shemesh election was hardly democratic

A Beit Shemesh resident wrote about the recent city election, and gives some further explanations why it wasn't exactly a democratic one, if Moshe Abutbol was going to spread misinformation, lies and slander.

Abutbol also got himself into more trouble recently by telling an interviewer that "there's no gays" in the city, even as one man came out of the local closet and proved otherwise. I'm not surprised there are some living there. Even in the Haredi community itself. I assume Abutbol gives them a free pass because it's taboo to argue against negative mentalities in his own circle. And when he tried to downplay his statements, he only sunk further into the morass:
In a follow-up interview on Galei Tzahal (Army Radio) Moshe Abutbol was asked about his statement regarding gays.

Abutbul awkwardly responded that he hadn't understood the term "gays," and had thought it meant "pedophiles."

Although Abutbul is ultra-orthodox, he is by no means closeted. Abutbul was not brought up ultra-orthodox, he served in the army (as a driver), taught in public schools, and hosted a radio show, and it is not plausible that he doesn't know what "Gays" means.

While his explanation seems to give a context to his remark about health services and police, it still leaves the unexplained claim that "they don't exist in our pure and holy city".

"Magen," the Beit Shemesh Child Protection Center, has received around one hundred reports of child abuse so far in 2013 in Beit Shemesh - of which over 85% are allegations of sexual abuse of children.
And there's every chance many of these crimes were committed by men against boys, so I'm not sure why he's putting his head in the sand. Furthermore, how can the police and health divisions do anything about this when a lot of these crimes were unreported, thanks to the offensive ghetto mentality rampant in many Haredi societies? Abutbol has only demonstrated why he's doing more harm than good.
