GOP Lobbyist Drafts Bill To Ban Gay Players From NFL
This is in direct response to Michael Sam coming out as gay.
”We are losing our decency as a nation,” Burkman said in a statement. "Imagine your son being forced to shower with a gay man. That’s a horrifying prospect for every mom in the country. What in the world has this nation come to?”
Burkman said he came up with the idea after college football star Michael Sam came out as gay a few weeks ago. If drafted, Sam would be the first openly gay player in the NFL.
“If the NFL has no morals and no values, then Congress must find values for it,” Burkman said.
Because clearly our legislators (and those that lobby them) have nothing better to do.
Oh, and FYI, Burkman's firm is no mere fringe group. According to The Hill Burkman signed 70 new clients last year, the most of any K Street firm.
