Rep. Spanberger Cursed at Rep. Good After He Defended Youngkin Transgender Policy and Criticized Grooming
September 24, 2022 | Virginia
The monthly Virginia congressional delegation lunch with Governor Glenn Youngkin became contentious on Monday when conversation turned to the Virginia Department of Education’s new model policies to replace current transgender policies, eventually leading to Representative Bob Good (R-VA-05) defending the policies. Representative Abigail Spanberger (D-VA-07) cursed at Good, according to reports.
“That’s not f—ing true,” Spanberger said, according to The Post.
“Spanberger was upset by the ‘aggressive nature’ of Good’s comments on transgender students and cursed at him, several attendees said. So yeah, it was a rough meeting,” Punchbowl reported.
Representative Jennifer Wexton (D-VA-10) began the discussion by highlighting her concerns about the impact on transgender students’ mental health, and Representative Don Beyer (D-VA-08) and Spanberger added to his concerns, according to The Post. Youngkin said the draft is a statement on parental rights. Then, Good spoke up, leading to Spanberger’s reaction.
Good told Punchbowl, “[It was] my turn to speak, and I refuted her position and said, ‘This is telling. This is where the Democrat Party is today. This is who they are today.’ This is the party that believes not only in grooming and encouraging gender confusion of elementary and middle school students – which is up some 4,000 percent from just a couple years ago because of what is happening in our schools — but this is also the party that supports the surgical procedures on minor children. Irreversible, harmful procedures. Mutilation of children. This party will not condemn that, it supports that.”
