SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A San Francisco supervisor who said he consulted a Ouija board before a vote now says he was joking - and the only spirit he was summoning was the spirit of humor.
Supervisors on Tuesday approved a non-binding resolution urging the Navy to name a ship after slain supervisor and gay rights activist Harvey Milk.
Supervisor John Avalos told the San Francisco Chronicle (http://bit.ly/MIq4dT ) that before voting, he believes he made contact with Milk's spirit and that Milk spelled out letters indicating: "Good riddance to don't ask, don't tell."
The quip made national news as an example of San Francisco wackiness.
Avalos now says he was just kidding and the closest he's gotten to the occult is reading all the "Harry Potter" books.
