Senator Favola Speaks Out Against Anti-Gay Bias
It was extraordinarily painful to see the nomination of Tracy Thorne-Begland, a qualified candidate seeking an appointment to the District Court bench, defeated during the meeting of the General Assembly on Monday, simply because Tracy is gay. We have to continue the fight against bigotry and divisive politics. The Commonwealth needs the talents and contributions of every Virginian.
I spoke out against the behavior of the General Assembly regarding the Thorne-Begland appointment this morning (May 16th) on the Bruce DePuyt "Newsmakers" show. Delegate Bob Marshall was there, as well, to deliver his narrow-minded views on the topic. Here is a link to the News Channel 8 show. http://bcove.me/5qus6gvs
