NJ gay couple to sue over political attack mailer

DENVER (AP) - A gay couple from New Jersey is suing a group that used their engagement photo in an attack mailer against a Colorado Republican lawmaker who supported civil unions.

The Southern Poverty Law Center plans to file a federal lawsuit Tuesday on behalf of the couple against the Virginia-based Public Advocate of the United States. The group used a photo of Brian Edwards Tom Privitere holding hands and kissing.

The mailer questioned the values of GOP Sen. Jean White, who faced a primary against a fellow Republican in a northwestern state district. White lost the primary.

She was one of a handful of Republicans who supported a civil unions bill that was blocked in the state House.

Republican Advocate of the United States did not respond to an email seeking comment.
