How Annise Parker’s Houston Mayoral Opponent Is Dogging Her With Anti-Gay Attacks

houstonmailer2

Ah, so now we know why Gene Locke — the Houston mayoral opponent of lesbian Annise Parker — is having such a hard time deciding whether to accept the endorsement of a homohpobe: Because Locke is the guy behind the anti-gay mailer attack on Parker.

Not to be confused with this anti-gay flyer campaign, the above effort, from Houston’s conservative “kingmaker” Dr. Steven Hotze’s PAC — Conservative Republicans of Harris County — was helped along by a $20,000 donation from Locke’s campaign finance chairman Ned Holmes, and $20,000 from finance committee member James Dannenbaum. That’s according to a Texas Ethics Commission investigation.

Dirty politics, Southern style.

      And space the graphics so it doesn’t look like the elephant is about to take a dump through the hole in the organization’s name.

      I live in Houston and have been disgusted by Locke’s behavior. The mailer shown doesn’t mention that Locke is a Democrat (supposedly) and tried to get the endorsement of the Houston Gay & Lesbian Political Caucus himself.

      As in the November election, I’m voting for Annise Parker not because she’s openly gay, but because she’s the most qualified candidate — and one who wouldn’t sink to the level Locke has reached with his desperation to grab the office for himself.

      Despite the hate campaign and idiot staffers running the Locke campaign here in Houston, Annise Parker is going to be our next mayor

      Congratulations to Annise for being elected mayor of America’s fourth largest city. And by a comfortable margin, too. And it’s in Texas (WTF?)

      Yaaaaay Annise.
