Mess with TEXAS. PLEASE!
Via The Advocate: “A Texas Republican lawmaker proposed a bill allowing everyday people to sue anybody who hosts or performs in drag where any child is in attendance. Critics say the measure will create a bounty-hunting culture that targets drag queens and transgender people. Houston-area state Rep. Steve Toth filed HB 4378 on Thursday. He seeks to define “a cause of action for drag performances performed in the presence of a minor.” A winning plaintiff can expect to be paid actual damages, attorney’s fees, and statutory damages of $5,000.00.”
The bill would uses the same tactics as controversial 2021 SB 8 in Texas, which gave private citizens the right to sue anybody they thought could have been involved with any part of an abortion after six weeks of pregnancy.
Rep. Steve Toth an extremist GOP member of Congress also believes that it was long past time for the United States to invade Mexico. In 2021, Toth tried to restrict lessons on historical racism. And in October 2020, Toth teamed up with a notorious anti-LGBTQ activist in a failed bid to throw out 127,000 Houston-area votes made through their new drive-thru polling stations.
