Idaho Republicans Want Anti-Discrimination Laws Voided

Idaho Republican Party leaders are calling on state lawmakers to invalidate local ordinances that ban discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, the Spokesman-Review reports.

Said Cornel Rasor, chairman of the Idaho GOP's resolutions committee: "I'd hire a gay guy if I thought he was a good worker. But if he comes into work in a tutu... he's not producing what I want in my office."

He added: "If a guy has a particular predilection and keeps it to himself, that's fine. But if he wants to use my business as a platform for his lifestyle, why should I have to subsidize that? And that's what these anti-discrimination laws do."
