Sally Field: Houston’s Haters Are Lying

Dominic Holden reports at Buzzfeed:

“It’s a lie. It’s a lie. It’s a lie. It’s a lie.” That was Sally Field on Thursday as she described an ad campaign currently running here in an attempt to repeal the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance, known as HERO. Field stood abreast with a group of women political leaders in Texas who encouraged a “yes” vote on Nov. 3 to uphold the law and denounced the ad campaign as outright lies. “Do you want to call it a lie, or shall I?” Texas state Sen. Sylvia Garcia said when BuzzFeed News asked the women to comment on an onslaught of recent commercials that claim HERO would allow male sex predators to prowl women’s restrooms in order to sexually assault young girls. Field stepped in. “When I read what HERO really is,” the Academy Award-winning actor told reporters, “I was so amazed there is disagreement.”

Holden notes that insiders say that polls now indicate the vote is in a statistical tie. (Photo by Dominic Holden)
