Have you read this article yet? I'm surprised he hasn't been excommunicated for appearing in City Weekly

Bestor has long been a Democrat. A few years back the party courted him to oppose Cannon in the 3rd Congressional district, but he ultimately demurred, saying that just wasn't his gig. He frequently makes appearances as Dem fundraisers, occasionally doing entertainment at them, and sometimes being the featured draw.

Interesting - this got completely by me. Incidentally, in a former (and now relegated to "hobby" status) career path, I did some work with Kurt Bestor and his partner, Sam Cardon (one of the NICEST guys I've EVER worked with), and I found Kurt to be the most egotistical, self-centered, mirror-watching knob I had ever met. So, it's always been my policy to IGNORE anything that ever came from his corner of the globe.

Now, I have been educated a bit to the rest of his life, and perhaps I can understand where he's coming from. Being a local celebrity who calls the LDS people his fan-base, at least here in this state, then ends up divorcing in the public view, has democrat leanings - I'm sure it's all very hard to maintian a persona when you feel like you are on the outside of so many things looking in through the windows. Just my random $0.02.
