Victory Fund’s Aisha Moodie-Mills disappointed LGBTQ issues not addressed during VP debate

After tonight’s Vice Presidential Debate with Tim Kaine and Mike Pence, Victory Fund President & CEO Aisha C. Moodie-Mills released the following statement:
“Mike Pence has made a career of singling out LGBTQ people for discrimination, and it is disappointing tonight’s debate did not address his long record of using public office to advance his backward views,” said Victory Fund President & CEO Aisha C. Moodie-Mills. “Pence opposes recognition of our relationships, opposes LGBTQ soldiers serving openly in the military, and opposes prohibiting restaurants and other businesses from refusing service to LGBTQ customers. It is important the Trump campaign’s extremist anti-LGBTQ positions be exposed in future debates – along with its attacks on women, immigrants, Latinos, Muslims, and veterans recovering from war. Their entire campaign has been built on fear and bigotry, and we believe voters will reject their attempts to turn back the clock on progress.”
