Metcalfe committee tirade prompts Democratic calls for chair resignation

After Rep. Daryl Metcalfe’s (R-Butler) outburst Tuesday over a touch on the arm from Rep. Matthew Bradford (D-Montgomery) that led to the former questioning the sexuality of the latter, Democrats are calling for Metcalfe to resign as majority chairman of the House State Government  Committee.

As the majority chair of that committee, Metcalfe controls whether any civil rights legislation could reach the House floor, including HB 1410, written by Rep. Dan Frankel (D-Allegheny), which would provide workplace discrimination protections for LGBT individuals to state law.

Rep. Frankel leads the charge on legislative action against hate-crimes in Pennsylvania

Rep. Frankel leads the charge on legislative action against hate-crimes in Pennsylvania

House Democratic Caucus Chairman Frankel (D-Squirrel Hill), along with House colleagues and faith leaders held a news conference Monday morning in Pittsburgh to discuss the aftermath of the events in Charlottesville, Virginia and to call for legislative action on House Bill 505 and/or Senate Bill 96, also known as the Fairness Act.  


“No group was left untouched in Charlottesville, said Frankel. “It was racism, anti-Semitism, anti-Muslim, it was anti-LGBT, anti- anything you can think of was found in that demonstration. While we saw a comprehensive expression of hate, we want a comprehensive reaction to it. And one of the ways to do that is to finally address hate crimes in Pennsylvania in a comprehensive way.”
