According to title cards at the end of the film, Dan White's lawyers argued that consumption of junk food caused a chemical imbalance in his brain. White's lawyers actually claimed that massive consumption of junk food was a symptom of his depression, not a cause. Psychologists employed by White's defense argued that he was clinically depressed, as evidenced by changes in behavior, including consumption of large quantities of junk food. One psychologist claimed that junk food may have contributed to White's mood swings.
When Harvey and Dan are being interviewed on TV in January 1978, Dan says he's expecting his first child. At the baby's christening, which appears to take place a few weeks later, baby Charles can hold his head up. Babies can usually hold their heads up at around four months old. Also Charles White was born in mid-June 1978, after the contentious vote on the youth campus, and after Harvey's forty-eighth birthday in May. (Dan's grudge against Harvey developed before Charles's birth, but Harvey was still invited to the christening.)

In the camera shop during Milk's 1973 campaign for supervisor, the song "Rock the Boat" by the Hues Corporation played in the background. But that song wasn't released until the summer of 1974, by which time Milk had already cut his hair short and was clean shaven. In the film the clean-cut Harvey Milk didn't appear until the beginning of the 1975 campaign.
