Rep. Donald McEachin Leads 60+ Members Urging Senate Leaders to Oppose Judicial Confirmation of Anti-LGBT Judicial Nominee

Congressman A. Donald McEachin (VA-04) sent a letter to Senate Majority Leader McConnell and Minority Leader Schumer with 64 colleagues, urging them to oppose the nomination of Stuart Kyle Duncan to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit because of his anti-gay and transgender activism.

“Over the course of his career, Mr. Duncan has challenged the rights of LGBT Americans by working fervently to deny them equality in court,” said Congressman Donald McEachin. “His work to allow discrimination against this community, especially transgender individuals, raises serious concerns about his commitment to fairly rule in cases concerning all individuals, regardless of their background or orientation. Given his record, I have little confidence that Mr. Duncan would administer justice fairly and impartially, and that is why my colleagues and I urge our Senate colleagues to reject his divisive nomination.”
