A California Democrat, Vice-Chair Jess LeTourneau of Democratic Party of Orange County, was caught absolutely berating gay volunteers who were gathering signatures during pride week.
The group of volunteers was simply helping collect signatures for a grassroots group that wanted to recall a Democratic state senator. They did not agree with his gas tax hike vote.
When LeTourneau walks up, things ugly in just moments. He tells them that they are disgraces and that they need to get out of the country. At one point he even accuses them of whoring themselves out in order to collect signatures.
LeTourneau says, “You are a f—ing disgrace to any gay person I know, you piece of s—.”
This is a complete violation of their first amendment right to free speech. He doesn’t have to agree with them but he can’t treat them that way either. He is what you call a bully.
