Pink Hoax Flyers Advertise Florida Mayoral Hopeful's 'Gay Agenda'

Lowe

Gainesville, Florida mayoral Candidate Craig Lowe is the target of a set of hoax flyers that were circulated last week touting his "gay agenda", the Gainesville Sun reports:

"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!” Lowe, a city commissioner, said in an interview that he was told the fliers had been put on cars at a Baptist church Sunday and some had been placed on cars along Main Street. It was not clear who was distributing them."

A good guess would be the 'Citizens for Good Public Policy', who were behind last year's fear-mongering ad (which failed) designed to scare voters from an LGBT anti-discrimination measure by saying that transgender predators would be using bathrooms at a child's playground. The anti-gays in Gainesville have a vivid and frightening imagination.

  1. Not to mention these Citizens for Good Public Policy recently had one of their own busted for video voyeurism in restrooms:

  2. The election is tomorrow Tues Mar 16. If there is a runoff - likely, and its likely that Craig Lowe, the gay candidate will be one of the two in the runnoff - you can help with priority #1 - electing gay people to office

    CALL 352-301-1045 AND ASK HOW YOU CAN CONTRIBUTE TO HIS RUNOFF CAMPAIGN

    wRITE DOWN THE NUMBER NOW - THIS IS IMPORTANT

  3. ...because we all know how much we would rather NOT use men's restrooms, what with us homos and our unstoppable desire to catch a peek at ladies in their delicates.
