Was Dianne Feinstein Harvey Milk's hag at the San Francisco city hall?

Were they besties or enemies?

She was generally an ally, but like many straights in the 70s, she had some discomfort with openly gay people. But she eventually got over that.

She tried to shut down the XXX Theatres in SF. Not a fan. Time to retire lady.

^ really? didn't know that!!

No, not really. On many issues, she was seen as a more moderate force on the Board, and often clashed with the more liberal Moscone and Milk.

But city politics are often fluid, and today's allies can easily be tomorrow's enemies.

Dan "Twinkie" Brown later admitted that he had also hoped to kill Willie Brown and Supervisor Carol Ruth Silver - a woman who WAS Harvey Milk's hag.
