Van Tran in a post-debate interview told me that he was not a divider like Loretta. Just so we can put that lie to bed, here is some evidence from one of his mailers that runs counter to his claim.
In this mailer, Tran clearly attacks the fears and bigotry that he haas promoted in the Vietnames community against the LGBT community. The photo is of Bob Tucker, candidate for Garden Grove School Board and his partner Quan. Here is what Bob wrote in their email to me about the mailer.
Above the article there is the quote from the Vietnamese priest who called gays “mentally deficient and inhuman” regarding the gay contingent in the Tet parade, which the picture is from. The sign we are holding says “19 years together, how about you?”
Below the picture it states that Sanchez always supports gay rights and is anti Prop 8.
In a way I’m glad the photo still has life after the Tet parade,
especially with the message of the sign we carried that day.
Van Tran is a DIVIDER. Any questions?
