One day after protesters decorated the wrought-iron fence spikes in front of the White House with scores of surgical gloves, President Clinton apologized to gay and lesbian elected officials "for the inappropriate and insensitive treatment several of the participants were subjected to at the entrance gate of the White House." At a White House meeting last week, some Secret Service agents wore rubber gloves when greeting the officials. Clinton personally assured the group that Secret Service Director Eljay Bowron "is taking steps to ensure that it will not happen again."
