Preach It Sister

A lesbian city commissioner in Orlando is blasting Senator Marco Rubio and other members of the Republican Party in the wake of the massacre inside a gay nightclub.
Patty Sheehan zeroed in on Republican lawmakers who did not support gun control legislation offered up in the days after the worst mass shooting in US history which left 49 people dead.
‘Marco Rubio, the senator from Florida, walked on our blood-stained streets with people from the Hispanic community,’ Sheehan said on SiriusXM Progress.  ‘And he went right back to Washington – one of the few times he actually showed up for work – and voted against sensible gun legislation.’
‘If this doesn’t change your heart?’
Sheehan further blasted Rubio, a failed candidate for president, by adding: ‘There were people from [Rubio’s] office – it was [a staffer’s] hair stylist who got shot and killed. This was a personal connection people from his office had with these young people. And he still couldn’t find it in his heart to do the right thing.’
Sheehan is no less happy with Florida’s Republican Governor Rick Scott who has not been supportive of LGBTI equality for the most part.
‘My governor couldn’t say the word “gay” until he was called out on it.’
Sheehan said of all Republicans: ‘I’ve called a lot of them out on it. I said, “How dare you come here to my city – our city – and stand in front of the microphone and take up space….You loaded those bullets with hatred, as far as I’m concerned.”
