For Immediate Release: Statement from Chuck Smith, CEO of Equality Texas in Response to Dan Patrick

Lt. Governor Dan Patrick says one of his priorities for the upcoming legislative session is the so-called “women’s privacy act.”  We believe Dan Patrick is using this false name to purposely try to pass legislation to discriminate against LGBT Texans. Clearly, the lt. governor does not really believe in protecting women or he would not be the state campaign chairman for Donald Trump, or defending Trump’s sexual abuse of women by saying the scandal is “in the rearview mirror.” 

We know Texans are smart enough to see through this façade and urge the lt. governor to stop this ridiculous crusade before he damages the Texas economy.
