He helped craft San Francisco's groundbreaking Equal Benefits Ordinance, which became a national model for workplace equality.Now Brinkin is charged with possession of child pornography.
Police say that Brinkin had pornographic images, some that appear to show children as young as 1 and 2 or 3 years old being sodomized and performing oral sex on adult men, in e-mail attachments linked to his account, according to a search warrant served by San Francisco police.Workplace equality? Try explaining that to abused children.
