Democratic Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney, who was the first openly gay member of Congress from New York, came to the defense of Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, after it was unearthed that she worked for an anti-LGBT group.
In a statement, Maloney said people who have “worked actively against equality” must be held accountable, but he also stressed the important of granting forgiveness to those whose views have shifted and who have apologized.
The article goes on to state the following:
“But I also understand how important it is that we encourage people to admit their error, grow, and evolve, as much of the country has done over the last two decades. That is exactly what Tulsi Gabbard has done,” Maloney said. “She recognized the fault in her past views and the pain she was causing, and she has apologized. She admitted her error and has become a strong ally and close friend in Congress.”
