Chan Responds to Controversy

By Bill O'Neil

San Antonio City Councilwoman Elisa Chan weighed in for the first time since a storm of controversy broke out around her over secretly recorded commetns she made on homosexuality. 

In a statement obtained by KTSA News--the Councilwoman said she was expressing her personal opinionsw and thoughts--and added she will continue to fight for freedom of speech during private settings.  

Chan has come under intense scruiny for what she said during that conversation--at one point using the word disgusting--then going on to say same-sex couples should not be allowed to adopt. 

The Councilwoman said she will hold a press conference later in the week to further discuss the matter--though there's no word on exactly when that will take place.
