Ellner ’92 Releases Campaign Ad

Brian Ellner ’92, who is running for Manhattan Borough President, recently released a new ad that not only pictures George W. Bush’s head superimposed on a naked torso, but also featured Ellner, who is gay, embracing his partner, Simon Holloway, on screen. WNYW, Fox’s New York affiliate has refused to air the ad, reportedly on the grounds that it is “disrespectful to the office of the president.”

While a student at Dartmouth, Ellner led the fight to end the College’s relationship with ROTC, the current cause celebre of campus leftists, on the grounds that the program was discriminatory towards gays.
