Actor James Denton received hate mail from angry Republican voters after he switched his political allegiances to the Democrats. The Desperate Housewives star began campaigning for Democrat presidential candidate John Edwards in 2004, and was supporting the politician right up until he quit the 2008 presidential race earlier this week (begs28Jan08).

He says, "I've gotten a surprising amount of mail from unhappy fans, some real conservatives who say that they're disappointed in you and will never watch your show again. "It's been eye-opening."
