A Peek at Lascivious Anti-Newsom Mailers
Oakland's Larry Tramutola was befuddled to find his address on the mailer. When asked what else there was on the postcard, he answered "There's a picture of Gavin with what looks like a butthole instead of where a mouth is, if I may be so rude, and another picture on the right-hand side of Gavin looking down a woman's blouse." It turns out Tramutola's description of the mailer was dead-on:
Calls to Newsom for Lieutenant Governor spokesman Peter Ragone were not returned.
As we noted yesterday, similar mailers were sent out in 2007 featuring the photo of Newsom ogling San Francisco's Twin Peaks. Those, however, implored recipients to call politicos Jim Sutton and Eric Jaye and had Newsom's mayoral campaign hedquarters as the return address.
SF Weekly has been unable to get a hold of the people behind the defunct and/or dormant Web sites, gavinsucks.com and gavinwatch.com.
