Lobbyist Wants A Bill To Ban Gays From The NFL
According to NBC sports.
Jack Burkman, CEO of the firm Burkman Associates LLC, announced that he had multiple members of Congress lined up to support his anti-gay bill. Notably, he declined to name those members. Interestingly enough his gay brother spoke up and exposed his brother for proposing this bill to get attention. Yes his brother is gay how ironic. Jack Burkman's openly gay brother Dr. Jim Burkman, an anesthesiologist from Seattle, had this to say about the bill:
“I think the idea that he is pushing legislation that is just hurtful and ridiculous is just plain stupid,” said Jim Burkman. “He is not a legislator and he can’t really push legislation. I don’t think there are any cosponsors for a bill. It is just an attention grab and a media grab to pander to those folks who pay him to lobby on their behalf."
Don't our politicians have more important things to worry about ? The NFL or the sexuality of it's players is not important enough for the people we pay tax money to run the country to be concerned with. What does anyone's sexuality have to do with the way they play a game ? I agree with Dr. Jim Burkman, his brother is just looking for some attention.
