Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund
November 3, 2008
Garnet Lewis subject of anti-gay attack ad
Every year it happens and every year it seems surprising. The practice of smearing openly Lesbian-Gay-Bisexual-Transgender candidates because of their sexual orientation or gender identity is a time-tested strategy that bigoted campaigns employ to win, often in the final days of the campaign.
This year is no different. Victory Fund candidate Garnet Lewis has become the target of a radio attack ad sponsored by the Campaign for Michigan Families that aims to scare voters by mentioning her affiliation with LGBT groups, including the Victory Fund, as well as pointing out her support of laws that would allow same-sex couples to adopt.
Listen to the ad below and read GayPolitics.com on election night to find out the results for all of the Victory Fundâ€™s endorsed candidates.
