PA's Worst: Republican Pushes Pro-Discrimination Proposal in PA House [VIDEO]

Last edited Fri Feb 7, 2014, 01:32 AM - Edit history (1)

This is a video from my show Counterpoint PA, the only grassroots progressive newscast exclusively about Pennsylvania politics.

In this edition of Counterpoint PA's homage to Keith Olbermann, the Worst Pennsylvanians of the Week, the winner is a conservative Republican state representative who is seeking cosponsors to introduce a bill that would literally legalize discrimination. While he wants to exempt businesses from a wide range of anti-discrimination laws, he also claims he's not endorsing discrimination. I'm not making this one up. I put the reality of this proposal in historical perspective and emphasize that it is, in fact, an endorsement of discrimination.
