National LGBTQ Task Force on Election of New House Speaker
October 25, 2023 - THE FOLLOWING CAN BE ATTRIBUTED TO ALLEN MORRIS, POLICY DIRECTOR, NATIONAL LGBTQ TASK FORCE:
"I would be hard-pressed to think of a worse member to be elected speaker of the house, not simply for LGBTQ communities, but for the American people. Many of my family members have resided in the 4th Congressional district of Louisiana for decades so I know from personal experience his track record on civil rights and minority issues is clear and stark as our community continues to find itself under attack.
Americans should consider his track record on the preservation and maintenance of our very democracy as one that should concern us all. This entire process of choosing a new speaker of the house has only served to expose even more how MAGA extremism continues to degrade our ability to allow Congress to reconcile the important issues impacting us."
