Disgusting! Fliers circulate mocking Gainesville mayoral candidate’s sexuality

in Statewide by
Mayoral candidate Craig Lowe issued a statement today decrying “hoax” fliers that have reportedly been circulated around town asking would-be voters to “Support The Gay Agenda” ahead of Tuesday’s election.

Lowe’s campaign sent reporters an image of the flier in question as well as an image of a more directly anti-Lowe flier that I reported on earlier this month.

Craig Lowe said that a flier, above, circulating around town that touts his “gay agenda” is a hoax and was not released by his campaign.
The pink fliers sarcastically suggest Lowe, who is openly gay, will work to get: “Gays in Women’s Restrooms,” “Gay Marriage,” “Gay Public Sex Education,” “Gay Oriented Churches,” “Gay Communities,” “Gay Civil Rights” and “Gay Parades.”

“Please help to make this town more like San Francisco, CA,” the flier reads. “Don’t let Traditional Value Activists use scare tactics against you!” Full story here.
