Dem NY Gov Candidate Backtracks On Don’t Say Gay

Gothamist reports:

Rep. Tom Suozzi wants to make clear: He doesn’t support Florida’s controversial new law restricting discussion of sexual identity in schools — despite saying some aspects of it were “reasonable” and made “common sense” just last week.

Suozzi said his prior comments were “very inartful in the way I spoke.” He said he opposes both the law – which all but bans discussion of gender identity and sexual orientation in grades K-3 – as well as Florida’s Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis, one of its biggest boosters.

“I want to clear up any misunderstandings: I oppose Gov. DeSantis,” Suozzi said. “I oppose the, Don’t Say Gay bill, full stop. I oppose them. I fully support LGBT families.”
