DNC on Jeff Sessions’ Alliance Defending Freedom Speech

This evening, Attorney General Jeff Sessions will deliver a closed-door speech to the anti-LGBTQ Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF). In response, DNC spokesperson Joel Kasnetz released this statement:

“You can judge a person by the company they keep and tonight – Attorney General Jeff Sessions is choosing to spend his time speaking in front of one of the country’s leading anti-LGBTQ hate groups. The Alliance Defending Freedom actively helped draft discriminatory legislationworked to preserve laws criminalizing same-sex relations, and attacked the separation of church and state. ADF has been previously designated a hate group and Sessions’ appearance at this event, as the top law enforcement official in the country, brings in to question whether the attorney general intends to protect all Americans.”
