Gov.-elect John Bel Edwards plans to issue an executive order to protect the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community from firing, discrimination and harassment as state employees and government contractors.

The Edwards' transition team did not provide a timeline for when the order might be issued, but the Democrat will be sworn into office Jan. 11.

One of the articles here said he was committed to his faith and his church.
Did you ping his pimps ?
The Church of Fudgepackery.
Still trying to figure out where this group of weirdos aren’t protected...
Doesn’t existing laws protect them?
So this pig doesn’t even *pretend* to be anything but a New York/Chicago/San Francisco Marxist.
Yes. Let us remember that each election when it is plastered all over a candidate. It’s bs.
Not that I would’ve voted for this guy anyway, he’s one of the rats.
Embarrassing for my state.
Send them to Chicago. They can go to work for United Air Lines.
But, he is Mr. Moral Code, as one journalist pointed out.
You get what you vote for... Good luck!
I didn’t vote for him, for the record.
Your “Conservative” Governor-elect in LA.
Nazi Faggotry. This is what happens when you elect Democrats. You will get Faggot Nazis imposing their will on you.
Did I miss something?
“Social Conservative Democrat”
The ultimate oxymoron - but the morons in LA believed it.
Now remind me again what was so bad about Vitter that Louisianans were willing to risk being the only Southern state with a rat governor for???
