Charles Kuffner writes on some more obvious homophobia:

Local GOP activist Dave Wilson is sending an automated telephone message to Republican voters urging them not to vote a straight ticket because a down-ballot GOP candidate is (shudder) gay.

Some from the article:

Why would Dave do this?" Woodfill said. "I mean, I agree with him on the homosexual issue, and the party position on that is clear."

"But it is wrong for Republicans to send the message not to vote straight ticket," he said. "The straight ticket helps all of our judicial races in Harris County."

Kuffner sums it up:

So, to summarize Jared Woodfill's position, the state GOP doesn't like homos, but they do like their votes. I find Dave Wilson's position to be the more honest of the two.
