House Speaker John Boehner: Gays don’t face any discrimination in the workplace

House Speaker John Boehner: Gays don’t face any discrimination in the workplaceHouse Speaker John Boehner addressed the issue of bringing ENDA to a vote in the House today.   Clearly the man is misinformed about LGBT employment rights:

“I
am opposed to discrimination of any kind in the work place and any
place else.

“But I think this legislation that I’ve dealt with as
chairman of the Educational Workforce Committee long before I was back
into leadership, is unnecessary and would provide a basis for frivolous
lawsuits.

“People are already protected in the work place. So I am, I’m
opposed to continuing this.

“Listen, I understand people have different
opinions on this issue and I respect those opinions but it is someone
who worked in this employment law area for all of my years in the
statehouse and all of my years here, I see no basis or no need for
this.”
