San Diego LGBT Weekly publisher Stampp Corbin is alleging that openly gay councilmember and mayoral candidate Carl DeMaio has turned his back on the LGBT community in his pursuit of power.

In an opinion piece released yesterday, Corbin accuses DeMaio of collecting a slew of endorsements from individuals and organizations that, Corbin says, stand strong against LGBT equality: the Republican Party Central Committee (RPCC) of San Diego County, former San Diego mayor Roger Hedgecock, and judge Larry Stirling.

“It is clear that DeMaio has made a pact with the devil in pursuit of power,’’ said Corbin. "DeMaio so desperately wants to be mayor that he has made deals with anti-LGBT organizations and people who support his candidacy for mayor, while also supporting groups whose main purpose is to fight against LGBT equality."

Corbin also alleges that DeMaio received the RPCC endorsement after his campaign posted Nathan Fletcher’s voting record and distributed a 14-page document decrying Fletcher’s stance on issues such as marriage equality.

If Carl DeMaio is of the devil; then it must be that Bonnie Dumanis is the Great Satan! Both of them are full of filthy, dirty tricks but that has nothing to do with their sexual orientations. Both of those Republicans make Nathan Fletcher look like an innocent choir boy! If I was of the party of the elephant, I know whom I would vote for!

Carl DeMaio wants to be mayor not queen of your prom. Live with it sweetheart.
