Did Democratic ad subliminally fag-bash Republican opponent?
State Sen. Mike Taylor, Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate, will withdraw from the race this afternoon, saying a Montana Democratic Party television ad has destroyed his campaign.
The ad is supposed to accuse Taylor of abusing student loan programs, but in reality seems to “out” Taylor as a homosexual:
Here’s the ad. It shows Taylor twenty years ago in a disco-era suit demonstrating how to give a facial, as part of a hairdresser school video. The gay angle is implied not stated, and wouldn’t even be noticed in an urban area like L.A. where I live. Apparently though, Montanans picked right up on it.
Note: Democrats are responsible for the ad, not Republicans…
