NBC Miami is reporting that signs for a candidate for a local city council have been defaced after a mailer (origin not mentioned in the article) included a picture of him with his male partner and daughter.


This is part of the reality of being a gay candidate that can't be captured in polls asking people if they'd vote for someone who's gay. It's also an important reason for gay candidates to keep on trying - eventually this sort of thing will have to lose its interest, even for homophobes. Right?

And kudos to Jesse Walters for being so gracious about the incident to the press even if that's not what he's actually feeling. Another image of a defaced sign is after the jump.


The smudged-out word is "shit."
