Defense of one of the most cherished rights of traditional marriage has claimed another victim in this wicked, PC world:
Indiana House Majority Leader Jud McMillin, a cosponsor of the state's controversial "religious freedom" law resigned his seat abruptly Tuesday, after a sexually explicit video starring the representative was sent via text message from McMillin’s cell phone. The Indianapolis Star reported it is unclear who sent the text or how broadly it was distributed.
This is the second time McMillin has resigned from a job over sexual misconduct allegations.
McMillin was a rising star in Indiana Republican politics, a conservative who also spoke out against marriage equality, opposes nondiscrimination protections for LGBT people, and coauthored legislation to prevent an LGBT youth group from obtaining a specialty license plate. In a prepared statement released yesterday, McMillin said the "time is right for me to pass the torch and spend more time with my family."
