The Trump Administration is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to uphold a case Doug Wardlow originally argued, to allow LGBTQ people to be fired for who they are
MINNESOTA – Today, the Trump Administration asked the United States Supreme Court to take up a case and rule that businesses can discriminate against workers based on their gender identity without violating federal law. The case the Trump Administration is asking the Court to consider was originally argued by Doug Wardlow on behalf of the Alliance Defending Freedom, an anti-LGBTQ hate group, to uphold the discriminatory firing of a funeral home employee in Michigan.
The following is a statement from Sam Fettig, Communications Director for Keith Ellison for Attorney General:
"Doug Wardlow has practiced a lifetime of discrimination, including his work to personally argue a case now advancing to the Supreme Court, to allow someone to be fired for who they are. When Wardlow says he will use the Attorney General's Office to defend President Trump's agenda in the courts, Minnesotans should believe him."
In case you missed it, just the other week, Wardlow's hate group was in our state, arguing against the Attorney General to allow for discrimination in Minnesota. At the KSTP debate this past weekend, Wardlow claimed to not know the details of the case, but Wardlow's record of discrimination make clear where he stands.
