- San Francisco District 4’s Supervisor Gordon Mar was recently targeted with a series of racist and homophobic flyers pasted over his re-election campaign posters.
- “Over the weekend and under the cover of darkness, someone decided to paste these flyers over our window signs in small businesses across the Sunset,” Mar wrote in a Twitter thread that included images of the flyers.
- One flyer called Mar a "communist" and "pedophile," while another claimed he stood for "more drugs" and "more homelessness" and accused him of "grooming children" and giving "free money to crackheads." Another line from the flyer said, “Kick out the Chinese, bring in Gangs.”
- Mar said the hateful flyers resembled those which appeared in his district last year after he supported efforts to bring affordable housing to the Sunset District for low-income families.
- According to Mar, the owners of the establishments where the flyers were posted were already reviewing and forwarding surveillance video to local authorities.
- He also said that the incident will not deter him from being “a voice for progress, for queer & trans equality, affordable housing, compassionate solutions to homelessness, & for moving forward.”
