Best Gremlin

Anthony Culler

Staff Pick

Former Congressional candidate Anthony Culler, who won 67 percent of the vote in the Sixth District GOP primary to challenge Democratic incumbent Rep. Jim Clyburn, made a brief splash on the national political scene last fall when he proclaimed on Facebook that same-sex couples are “gremlins that will only destroy our way of life.” Anyone who follows South Carolina’s face-palmetto moments could have predicted the backlash that followed, but there was one interesting twist: Another Republican, Daniel Encarnacion of Moncks Corner, arose to challenge Culler in the election. His reason? Not because he wanted to take a stand for marriage equality, but because, as Encarnacion said in a press release, “I cannot sit idly by and allow Mr. Culler to describe gay men and women as gremlins.” Bold move there, man.
