The Washington Blade first reported about how, in the past several days, a half-dozen or so of Galvin’s yard signs have been found in North Miami defaced with the word “fag.”
Derek Newton, general consultant for Galvin’s campaign, said: “We’ve taken them down, obviously — had people calling in to report them and what-not,” Newton said. “It’s impossible to know who’s doing it, of course.”
Galvin, who serves on the North Miami City Council, is among nine contenders seeking the Democratic nomination to represent Florida’s 17th congressional district being vacated by Kendrick Meek.
Newton said the Galvin campaign informed the North Miami Police Department about the graffiti and is considering the next appropriate action.
