Bryan Fischer: A lesbian district attorney was to blame for Rick Perry’s indictment
Adamantly homophobic US radio host Bryan Fischer has claimed that a lesbian district attorney was to blame for the indictment of Texas Governor Rick Perry over an abuse of power.
Tweeting, Fischer incorrectly stated that a district attorney had indicted Perry, suggesting that because she was a lesbian, she was in fact guilty of an abuse of power.
He claimed that his source was “credible.”
In June, Perry had said: “I may have the genetic coding that I’m inclined to be an alcoholic, but I have the desire not to do that, and I look at the homosexual issue the same way.”
The failed 2012 Republican presidential candidate is now facing a charge of abuse of official capacity, which carries a prison sentence of five to 99 years.
