California Congressman Dana Rohrabacher, who said last week that people should be "open to all perspectives" when it comes to global warming, thinks it's good for people to sell their homes I do not want to do that for LGBTQ people. The Orange County Register reports that Rohrabacher was talking last week to a delegation from the Orange County Association of Realtors, which urged him to support a bill that would protect the list of protected classes under the Fair Housing Act Supplement orientation and gender identity ̵
On Thursday, the newspaper asked him about it, and he doubled:
Rohrabacher acknowledged the veracity of the sentiment, adding that homeowners should have the right to "choose who they do business with."
"We've drawn a line on racism, but I do not think we should expand that line," said Rohrabacher. "A homeowner should not be required to negotiate with someone he thinks he is doing something immoral."
The Register reports that the National Association of Realtors, which had previously advised its members to donate to Rohrabacher, withdrew its support from him. "It was decided that the Deputy Rohrabacher is no longer supported by the NAR presidential circle," reads the statement of the group on the Register . "Of course, we hope Congress will … support the elimination of discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity."
There is no small loss for Rohrabacher, as the Register reports $ 5,000 in December and January. "I'm sure I can not do well if people pull me off their list," Rohrabacher pouted at the paper. "It is sad to see that the priority of the NAR is that it ensures that a person's personal lifestyle is stamped."
Rohrabacher, who happens to be responsible for the career of war criminal Erik Prince, is caught in a tough reelection this year. Sixteen people, including Rohrabacher and eight Democrats, will run in California's Top Two Area Code in June to represent a district that Hillary Clinton won two points in 2016.
