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


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.
