Investigation of Sunnyside anti-gay flier sought

Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - A congressman is calling on Arizona and federal authorities to investigate a pair of controversial fliers attacking a school board member as a possible hate crime.

The Arizona Daily Star reports that U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva will ask the Pima County Attorney's Office to investigate the fliers attacking Sunnyside board member Daniel Hernandez Jr., including one that targeted his sexual orientation.

The Democrat said he will make an inquiry to the U.S. Department of Justice and FBI to assist the county attorney in determining whether the attack on Hernandez's sexual orientation is a hate crime.

The two fliers surfaced more than a week ago, with reports that someone handed out the materials at schools and left the fliers at homes.

One flier said the Sunnyside school board needed a "real man" while noting that Hernandez is gay.
