Rep. Metcalfe: Democrats Are Trying To Turn The Perpetrator Into The Victim

Rep. Metcalfe: Democrats Are Trying To Turn The Perpetrator Into The Victim”

"You have people on your side of the aisle that might like it".

A Republican state lawmaker in Pennsylvania is reportedly facing calls to resign after lashing out and insinuating a democratic colleague was gay for touching his arm during a committee meeting.

'Look, I'm a heterosexual.

"I said I don't like to be touched like that by another man".

"...to my calling on Rep. Bradford, to do what I've asked him in the past, and that's to stop touching me constantly during meetings".

Bradford, who has a wife and children, laughed and said the meeting was "officially off the rails".

Wolf, a Democrat, called Metcalfe's comments "offensive and discriminatory" in a statement posted on Twitter.

Bradford, who is married with children, denied touching Metcalfe on goal to get a rise, and said the Republican overreacted. The most homophobic, transphobic, racist, sexist, xenophobic member of our government is using legislative time, and tax payer dollars, to interrupt a meeting to announce his sexual orientation'.

When told about the Democratic party's call for him to step down, Metcalfe said Tuesday he had no plans to resign, according to The Inquirer, a Philadelphia-based news outlet.

Bradford later told Triblive.com that the lawmaker's comments were "unpleasant and awkward and appalling", adding: 'In this day and age, it's really inappropriate'.

As can be seen in the video above, Metcalfe interrupted Bradford to let his feelings be known about the arm touch. 'But I know from him touching me all the time that he indicates he likes to touch men'. Yesterday Metcalfe defended his position.

Bradford denies Metcalfe's claim of repeated touching.

Ryan Briggs, a political reporter for City and State PA, tweeted that Metcalfe had also "once invited a white nationalist to testify in favor of a bill to make English PA's "official language".

State Representative Daryl Metcalfe has always been a problem in Harrisburg.
