For instance, DeMaio has been the target of homophobic attacks. But where are those attacks coming from? It’s not always from the far right social conservatives you’d expect; rather, it’s been from DeMaio’s left – the liberal and Democrat-affiliated groups that you’d think would be proud that an openly gay successful businessman has decided to run for office.

One false attack drew the attention of the San Diego Ethics Commission. An anonymous left-wing group funded a SuperPac and sent mailers of DeMaio Photoshopped next to a drag queen to neighborhoods with a majority of elderly and African-American voters, knowing that such a photo would depress support for DeMaio.

That was so egregious and false that the group was fined by the city’s Ethics Commission, but even after that, and with his 100 percent voting record with the LGBT community, the Left still didn’t speak up to defend him. They told DeMaio, “It’s complicated.”

It might seem that being liberal was tad bit more important than being homosexual.

In other words - they will throw anyone under the bus to further their political ends.

Tolerance, civility, etc. are not virtues to be practiced, but hammers to be used as bludgeons against one's opponents.

It looks like the person who solely funded the PAC had a back scratching deal with the incumbent. source (http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2013/Oct/11/gay-baiting-carl-demaio-ads-revealed/)
