Very funny, except I live in this state.
Melina found this one for me.
Contest for 13th already strident
In the 13th district, Republican Vernon Robinson is trying to unseat Miller, a two-term incumbent from Raleigh.
Robinson thinks he has a powerful issue which he can ride to Congress -- growing concern about the wave of illegal immigration coming into the state. He has already run a radio ad that features mariachi band music playing in the background.
"If Miller had his way," says the announcer, "America would be nothing but one big fiesta for illegal aliens and homosexuals."
"My wife was interviewed on three television stations last week about why we had not had children and what was my sexual orientation," Miller recently told delegates to the 13th District Democratic convention at Alamance Community College.
Miller said his wife of nearly 25 years, Esther Hall, could not bear children because she had endometriosis and then a hysterectomy at age 27 before the couple were married.
Robinson said he brought up the Millers' childlessness in the broader context of showing that Miller was outside the mainstream. He said being childless might influence Miller's votes, citing Miller's opposition to providing vouchers to allow children in Washington, D.C., to attend private schools.
Miller said Robinson was clearly using code words to suggest that Miller is gay [and that] Robinson has a history of implying that his opponents are gay, noting that in 2004, he described GOP opponent Ed Broyhill as "limp wristed." Robinson said he was not questioning Miller's sexuality.
"I did not say the guy is a homosexual ...," Robinson said. "We were talking about the left-wing wacko friends he runs around with."
