The Anonymous Pink Flyer Attacking Ron Nirenberg in San Antonio District 8 Runoff



Given the interest in yesterday's report on the anti-gay activities of San Antonio runoff candidate Rolando Briones, this post serves as a follow up. Below is the anonymous pink flyer that was mailed to some voters in San Antonio District 8 (with no disclaimer or reply-address).

If this did come from Briones camp, it certainly would fit a pattern of behavior. It's hard to look at this and not see gay-baiting at work. Of course, that's just one of a multitude of over-the-top associations (Bill Ayers!) and accusations. But those really play a supporting role- all intended to make you wonder if Ron Nirenberg might just be too good looking, you know, because we all know what *that* means... to older voters in northwest San Antonio likely to vote in a June runoff.

1. The gish gallop looks even more stupid in print than it does on stage

2. I've seen Briones in TV ads. He's extremely arrogant.

He gave me the creeps.
It's very unusual for a City Council race to turn ugly.
Nirenberg/Briones barely made the run off with Nirenberg almost pulling off a victory.
Briones will be the Ted Cruz of San Antonio City Council if he wins.

3. This smacks of desperation to me.

Were I Mr. Nirenberg, I'd take this flyer as evidence that I was likely to win the election. I would mock it, publicly, for the desperation it clearly demonstrates.
