Graphic Homoerotic Mailer Attacks NY GOP Senator Mark Grisanti for Marriage Equality Vote


A piece of political attack mail attacking New York Republican state senator Mark Grisanti for his vote in favor of marriage equality last year has been circulating, Politico reports:

GrisantiThe piece, which appears as an attachment as if it's a direct mail piece but so far hasn't been reported as landing in in-boxes, says it was paid for by the Committee to Save the Erie County Republican Party. A Google search revealed nothing about the committee, and it wasn't immediately clear who is sponsoring the group.

  1. Considering these images come from infamously enthusiastic-about-copryight-infringement-lawsuits Corbin Fisher, something tells me the Erie Republican party is going to regret this one.

  2. Republicans really are the scum of the earth; no offense to actual scum. That is all.

  3. A new low in political attacks. With Citizens United, expect to see much more this fall.

  4. Although this was intended to attack Grimsanti I think people will be disgusted at this attack and will actually SUPPORT him ! I think even the majority of anti-gay people still believe there are certain lines you do not cross and this is extreme and in very poor taste. They won't want to be associated with this.

  5. I bet you whoever picked these photos had a LOT more fun than they will ever admit. Bel Ami clearly has a fan in the Erie County Republican Party.

  6. Are the models from Corbin Fisher or Bel Ami? If it is Corbin Fisher, Erie Republican party is in big trouble. They even sued their past models for posting screen cap pictures of themselves.

  7. Wow! Considering studies show that a majority of adolescent males experiment with some sort of homosexual contact. I think these photos may bring back some fond memories. I know they do for me. Grisanti may walk back into office on these ads alone.

  8. Im sorry - but that add....was bad enough, then I saw the whole un edited version..PATHETIC! The GOP have sunk to an all time low ...leaving room for further sinking.....

  9. Ah, yes...keep giving them the rope until they've hung themselves. They do it so well...and without any real help from the left.
    The death of the current republican party will be a "suicide" I won't shed a tear for.
    And...I know not all repubs support this kind of thing...but if they stand by and allow it to happen...they're guilty. I think if you watch someone get killed and don't intervene in some're considered an accomplice, eh?

  10. If I received that in the mail, I would be rather excited.

  11. Debating whether this shows desperation or just plain hatefulness. From the repubs on the right wing I've encountered in my life I'd have to go with hatefulness cuz that's just the way they is.

  12. This is a no-brainer, anti-gay Christians and their hate groups are behind this attack on him and any gay ally of LGBT people. The anti-gay Christians seem to have a problem with people who they can not control or any group who wants their equal rights and Civil Rights and freedoms in America that do not fit their agenda of hate and oppression of minorities.

  13. eerie Republicans

  14. That is just. Wow. So FCKING offensive I don't know where to begin. Its stunning how sex obsessed and obviously repressed they are. Hopefully people wont fall for this textbook gay baiting.

  15. that mailer was so confusing!! "Tell your son to thank" the senator?? HUH?? seems like homophobic people would be upset at the insinuation that their son is having really hot gay sex.. As an aside, more junk mail should be as fun to view as that one was.

  16. I wonder how he got those screen grabs?

    Posted by: Garst | Sep 10, 2012 9:02:20 PM

  17. My god that's a Corbin Fisher picture:

    They sue people who over unauthorized use of there images.

    Forward this to Mark Randazza ASAP!

  18. Republicans are so gay.

    Posted by: Andy | Sep 10, 2012 9:19:55 PM

    The former model posted his picture on an escort site. Corbin Fisher demanded $150000 for each picture. It is really funny if these wingnuts get themselves involved in a gay porn lawsuit.

  20. ROFL this shows how so many gay rights opponents are just craving cock themselves. Who put this ad together with a straight face? No one, not with a "straight" face that is. Love it.

  21. @Peter: Pretty disgusting move on their part to do this, but a silver lining could be that CF will make them pay dearly in court. Oh yeah, baby.

  22. If that is a Corbin Fisher photo the republican scum who posted it are in big trouble. Corbin Fisher would sue his grandmother to protect his brand.

  23. Not a "new low." About 15 years ago, a friend of mine ran for county legislator in Erie County, and used a gay baiting tactic much like this one.

    I was appalled that he would do that, but he was shameless about it. He is no longer my friend.

    But it's nothing new.

    Posted by: Randy | Sep 10, 2012 11:20:52 PM

  24. Sadly, this comes from our local Log Cabin Republicans here in Erie County.

    Posted by: Erie | Sep 11, 2012 12:02:17 AM

  25. Erie, is that true?

    Andrew, Corbin Fisher would sue Jason Gibson!

    Zeb. They've got good taste, I'll give them that!
