Naked Politics: Flier in Miami commission race highlights dispute over gay group's endorsement

From the Miami Herald's Naked Politics blog:

A new attack flier in the down-and-dirty race for Miami Commission District 2 goes after candidate Kate Callahan, saying a gay-rights group linked to one of her campaign consultants improperly endorsed Callahan.

Except the group, Unity Coalition, says it has not backed anyone in the race.

"We never, ever issued an endorsement in District 2 at all," said Herb Sosa, president of Unity Coalition's board of directors. He called the flier "completely fabricated."

The group did send out an email to candidates Donna Milo and Michelle Niemeyer -- first reported by the Political Cortadito blog -- informing them of the board's decision to back Callahan, Sosa acknowledged. But the group later told the candidates it was not going to formally and publicly back anyone in the race.
