California Republican: Home Sellers Should Be Able to Engage in LGBT Housing Discrimination

Rep. Dana Rohrabacher

While speaking to a group of Realtors, Republican Rep. Dana Rohrabacher said homeowners should be able to engage in LGBT Housing Discrimination. Rohrabacher, who represents California’s 48th District, was talking to an Orange County Association of Realtors delegation in Washington, DC on 16 May.

Wayne Woodyard, a former Orange County Realtor president, reported what Rohrabacher said.

‘Every homeowner should be able to make a decision not to sell their home to someone (if) they don’t agree with their lifestyle,’ the politician told the group. On Thursday (24 May), he confirmed his sentiments. ‘We’ve drawn a line on racism, but I don’t think we should extend that line. A homeowner should not be required to be in business with someone they think is doing something that is immoral.’
