This has to be one of the most despicable political fliers I've seen in a while. Rose Ferlita, a Tampa Republican, is running for mayor. Less Government Now, a 527 group, sent out the flier headlined with, "Rose Ferlita: Unmarried. Unsure. Unelectable."
Obviously, this is meant as a suggestion that Ferlita is a lesbian. (I have no idea if she is or isn't and it's obviously none of my business; her marital status wouldn't change her ability to do the job one way or another.) Strangely enough, the 527 is denying that they sent the flier and points the finger at a Democratic operative who also denies involvement. The group and the consultant have worked together before.
Absolutely disgusting. Politics is a dirty sport, but this makes pig wrestling look squeaky clean.
