Due To Redistricting, Rep. Ken Calvert Could Represent Palm Springs

Yes, it is true. One of the gayest cities in the world can very soon have one of the most homophobic congressmen representing them.

It has not happened YET. There is still time to make sure this does not happen. Republican Kenneth Stanton Calvert is the U.S. representative for California’s 42nd congressional district serving since 1993. The district is part of the Inland Empire of Southern California. According to Metrosource

“Thanks to redistricting, the sitting representative will see his constituency shift from a ruby-red slice of California’s Inland Empire to a more diverse mélange of voters. In addition to Palm Springsians, residents of Rancho Mirage and Palm Desert will have the opportunity to kick Calvert to the curb.”

 

Why do we not want this douchebag in Congress, again? Well, for starters his legislative scorecard from the ACLU is abysmal, matching the ACLU’s position once out of eight votes. It gets worse, according to On The Issues, here are some more examples of his voting record:

*voted YES on Constitutionally defining marriage as one-man-one-woman.

*voted YES on Constitutional Amendment banning same-sex marriage.

*voted YES on banning gay adoptions in DC.

*co-sponsored amending Constitution to define traditional marriage.

There’s more:

*rated 7% by the ACLU, indicating an ant-civil rights voting record.

*rated 0% by the HRC, indicating an anti-gay-rights stance.

*rated 28% by the NAACP, indicating an anti-affirmative-action stance.

*voted with the now-disgraced, twice-impeached, one-term former President Trump 96.8%

 

 

Californians, you can do this, you can get Calvert out! All you have to do is VOTE!

  1. As a gay constituent in his current district, this may give our side the votes needed to vote him out. He is used to the blind-faith Trumpsters he currently panders to.
