Republican Congressman May Lose Seat After Officiating Same-Sex Wedding
Denver Riggleman, the American Congressperson who represents Virginia’s 5th congressional district since 2018 faces censure after his party turns against him.
This happens after he officiated the wedding of Anthony LeCounte and Alex Pisciarino whom he met at a Log Cabin Republican event.
In a Facebook post, his wife, Christine Blair Riggleman stated that ‘love is love,’ as she referred to the amazing couple who got married.
Now, three GOP county committee members are now voting to censor Riggleman.
Because of this, he will experience a lot of difficulties in the next elections.
His nomination depends on votes of the elected delegates, who will decide whether he runs or not.
Instead, the votes of the elected delegates will decide on whether he will run or not.
Against him, runs Robert Good, who claims to have a “biblical view of marriage”, and he doesn’t want to promote a “transgender bathroom mandate.”
He also promises that he will defend the “religious freedom” and “Judeo-Christian principles” upon election.
Funnily enough, he doesn’t seem to realize that people need equality more than they need their views obliterated by irrelevancies.
Unfortunately, Good a strong chance of winning, as he is now leading with 62% of the district’s delegates, despite the fact that Riggleman co-sponsored the HEROES act.
He’s also insistently claiming that Riggleman’s belief don’t represent the “conservative values of the district.”
