Michigan Senate Race Spawns Anti-Gay Flyer, Defamation Lawsuit


A race for the state Senate in Michigan has turned homophobic and ugly with the release by candidate Kim Meltzer of a flyer against her opponent Leon Drolet that's being called "the pinnacle of nastiness" and "the worst in gutter politics" according to local station WDIV.

Drolet ClickonDetroit reports:

"The mailing shows Macomb Township Republican Leon Drolet’s face superimposed over a rainbow flag, with two male figures holding hands. The accusations are designed to make Drolet, the chairman of the Michigan Taxpayers Alliance, out to be the ultimate liberal in a conservative primary in Macomb’s Northern District. 'It’s all appalling, but the fact that she claims I want to legalize public sex in restrooms, and introduce legislation to do that, is a flat-out bold-faced lie. Completely unsupportable and disgusting,' Drolet said. Drolet’s competition for the republican nomination, Kim Meltzer, is the author of the mailing. Meltzer did not return calls to Local 4 for comment. Meltzer’s claims cannot be backed up by votes when Drolet was a county commissioner and state representative. What he voted for when he was a State Rep. in 2003 was a bill the repealed unconstitutional laws that include banning swearing and gay sex. Drolet was one of many lawmakers who supported overturning the arcane laws."

  2. I know this is a very important issue,but can we talk about the hair? I didn't realize Screech was transgender and was running for office?

  4. There used to be a quaint notion put forth by Feminists that "if only women were in power, compassion would rule and things would change."
    But, because I myself do not want to be sexist, I'll refrain from gender-based insults and simply call her a shithead.

  7. I had the displeasure of meeting this woman at the Memorial Day ceremony in my town. She's about as crazy as she looks in that picture.

  8. Hey, Meltzer! Foxxy Cleopatra called. She wants her out-of-date afro back. PS: It looks hideous on you.

    What a vile, ugly person... inside and out.

  12. That's the first time I've ever seen a merkin worn on the head! Seriously, NO ONE likes her enough to tell her the unfortunate news that her hair looks like a bad pubic bush?
    Wait, was she in DC during the Clarence Thomas trials? Maybe that wasn't a pube in his soda after all!

  13. Wow. That is really, really low and disgusting. I see a bright future for her in the Republican party!

  14. Indeed, Stepsi! Add Meltzer's name to a list of vagina-owning horrors that includes Sarah Palin, Sharon Angle, Virginia Fox, and Michelle Bachmann

  16. She truly anti-gay....so much so she can't find one to work out that wig for her.

  17. I always wondered what became of Jan Brady's curly black wig.

  18. Gutter politics littered by unsubstantiated claims and out and out lies by Republicans trying to get into or hold onto office?

    Color me surprised.

  19. By the hair it's obvious she has never had a gay friend, yikes. She needs a sign around her neck that says "No Smoking". POOF.

  20. Call her and tell her what you think. She's such a shit. If you pause the video you can see how that flyer is filled with rabid homophobia. Call her:

  21. Someone find her momma and put her bead back up there, Girl ain't done yet.

  22. I think everyone of you posters are disgusting!! People that have to make crude remarks of someone else need only look in the mirror at themselves. I find Kim Meltzer a wonderful woman that has alot to offer Michigan!! And she is a Christian with morals!! I am saddened she did not win. And what does her hair have to do with anything. You people really ought to get a life!!
