Macomb Township, Mich., state senate candidate Kim Meltzer is facing a defamation lawsuit for the antigay political smear ad she created in her race against Leon Drolet in the Republican primary.
In her latest mailing, Meltzer's campaign sent out a mailing depicting a rainbow flag and two male figures holding hands beneath Drolet's face, in an attempt to paint him as an extreme liberal.
“It’s all appalling, but the fact that she claims I want to legalize public sex in restrooms, and introduce legislation to do that, is a flat-out bold-faced lie. Completely unsupportable and disgusting,” Drolet says.
In 2003, Drolet voted for a bill to overturn laws banning swearing and gay sex.
The primary is Tuesday.
