On Monday, former WV delegate Marty Geartheart (R-Dist. 27), reacted to current delegate Eric Porterfield’s comments (R-Dist. 27) about the LGBTQ community. Porterfield says businesses should have the right to deny someone based on their lifestyle, in reference to the LGBTQ community. Porterfield has also compared the LGBTQ community to the KKK.

“Mr. Porterfield has maybe not recognized his role as a member of the House of Delegates,” said Gearheart. “As a member of the House, it’s his job to form legislation, to move legislation, to modify it…and it takes a group of people to do that. Very rarely can influence people to do things with hyperbole and name calling.”
