On the organization’s website, the Pinellas Stonewall Democrats have re-issued their press release endorsing Scott Wagman for Mayor of St. Petersburg.

You’ll notice the Stonewalls continue to misleadingly frame this election as a battle against Foster. They are trying to drive turnout for Scott Wagman by making Foster out as the bogeyman.

The Stonewalls don’t have to like Foster and Foster hasn’t been a friend to the gay community. But, by attacking Foster for Wagman, all the Stonewalls are really doing is energizing Foster’s conservative base.

The GLBT community better hope that Wagman makes it out of the primary, otherwise the Stonewall Democrats are going to be a cause without a candidate.
