HRC On Hamilton’s Anti-LGBTQ Rhetoric

Oct. 2, 2020

In response to Phoenix Mayoral Candidate Merissa Hamilton in a private Facebook group spewing hateful anti-LGBTQ rhetoric as revealed by the Arizona Republic, HRC Arizona State Director Bridget Sharpe issued the following statement:
“Merissa Hamilton’s disgraceful participation in this private, hateful anti-LGBTQ Facebook group is disqualifying. She and other anti-equality Arizona candidates are parroting the far-right conspiracy theories concocted by QAnon, a group the FBI has labelled ‘conspiracy theory-driven domestic extremists’ and a 'domestic terror threat.'
“What’s worse, Hamilton’s involvement in the private group shows that she knows what she believes is too hateful and wrong to say publicly, and yet she continues to peddle these homophobic and transphobic ideas in secret. This development makes it all the more important that we re-elect Mayor Kate Gallego so she can continue to fight for equality.”
