‘Homophobia, transphobia’ in Atlanta School Board race

Atlanta School Board candidate Angela Brown "wants Atlanta School children to cross-dress," opponent Byron Amos is accused of claiming in a recent campaign mailer.

Brown and Amos are competing for the District 2 seat on the Atlanta Board of Education. Brown placed first in the field of five candidates in the November election, garnering 37.95 percent of the vote. Amos placed second with 24.26 percent.

Because no candidate received more than 50 percent of the vote, the top two advance to the Dec. 6 runoff election.

The charge about children cross-dressing is included in a mailer with the headline, "Would you trust someone like this with your children?"
