Gainesville, FL Elects Openly Gay Mayor

In a nail-biter of a runoff election, tonight openly gay Gainesville, Florida mayoral candidate Craig Lowe was declared the winner, pending a mandatory vote recount triggered by his razor-thin win by 35 votes. Lowe's candidacy was marked by repulsive anti-gay rhetoric by Christianist activists, including "No Homo Mayor" signs in front of one church and the below false flier campaign which promised predatory "gays in women's restrooms" should Lowe win. Congratulations, Mayor Lowe! Let's hope this sticks.
