Featuring a pair of characteristically smooth twinks in various stages of love-making, a recent attack ad—one aimed at Sen. Mark Grisanti, a New York Republican who switched his vote in 2011 to support same-sex marriage, which in turn helped make it legal in the state—hurled down the gauntlet with this rather racy, very hateful direct-mail attack ad. The mailer condemns the senator's enlightenment, if you will, saying, "For his gay marriage vote, Mark Grisanti received over $750,0000," adding, "Make sure your son says 'Thank you, Mark Grisanti.' "
As Politico notes. "The piece, which appears as an attachment as if it's a direct mail piece but so far hasn't been reported as landing in in-boxes, says it was paid for by the Committee to Save the Erie County Republican Party. A Google search revealed nothing about the committee, and it wasn't immediately clear who is sponsoring the group." However, according to BuzzFeed, "Buffalo-area bloggers and writers have been commenting about the anti-Grisanti machinations of 'The Committee to Save the Eric County Republican Party' for a few months now, with multiple people connecting the 'committee' to Matthew Ricchiazzi, a Cornell University graduate who ran a failed campaign for Buffalo mayor."
After famously changing his mind in favor of gay civil rights last year, Sen. Grisanti said, "Who am I to say that someone does not have the same rights that I have with my wife, who I love, or to have the 1,300-plus rights that I share with her," going on to say, "A man can be wiser today than he was yesterday."
UPDATE: According to BuzzFeed, "In a public letter announcing the end of his failed mayoral run, Ricciazzi identified as bisexual." Interesting. Also, at noted in The Sword, the images are snaps from gay porn company Corbin Fisher. The first image is from Zeb Fucks Wayne, and the second is from "beloved classic" Fucking Skip.
