David Schweikert Sued Over Ad Insinuating Primary Rival Is Gay

 

 

Arizona Republican Representative David Schweikert was hit with a lawsuit by a Phoenix man who objected to being featured in campaign ads that implied Schweikert’s primary opponent, Elijah Norton, is gay and therefore unqualified to run for office.

 

The man, Leslie Hammon, says he was surprised when he discovered a mailer Schweikert sent out to voters shows Hammond-with his face blurred-and Norton arm-in-arm while facing the camera.

 

Hammon says his mental health has slipped significantly since Schweikert’s campaign sent out more than 50,000 of these mailers around the district.

 

“Schweikert’s advertisements are intended to convey, and clearly do convey, a message that gay people do not belong in Congress or any other public office.”

 

They also clearly convey the patently false assertion that Hammon and Norton are currently or have previously been in a romantic or sexual relationship.

 

Schweikert’s campaign has refused to apologize for the ads, saying in an official statement that “Norton’s egregious history of callously defrauding consumers, and filling up their cell phones with his illegal car warranty robocalls is well documented in courthouses all across the country.”

 

The image soon went viral and many have criticized Schweikert’s campaign for engaging in defamatory behavior.

 

Schweikert has proven himself a controversial figure since he entered Congress in 2010 following two failed bids for a seat in the House of Representatives.
