HRC on resignation of Rep. Mark Souder: Gay people are not the threat to 'family values'

News release from Human Rights Campaign:

Human Rights Campaign Statement on Mark Souder’s Resignation

Upon news today that notoriously anti-LGBT Rep. Mark Souder, R-Ind., is resigning after an affair with a member of his staff, Human Rights Campaign spokesperson Michael Cole released the following statement:

“Rep. Souder proves once again that it’s not LGBT people who are the threat to ‘family values.’ The good citizens of Indiana would be well served to elect a successor who in both word and deed more closely mirror their own values of equality and respect for all people.”

Rep. Souder has the distinction of scoring a zero on every single Human Rights Campaign scorecard since entering Congress in 1995. He has consistently voted against equal employment protections, common-sense hate crimes laws, increases in HIV/AIDS funding and providing any measure of equality to same-sex couples.
