Dear Attorney General McCollum,
As Florida's chief legal officer, you above all people should understand that discrimination is wrong.
I was appalled to read that your representative recently defended Florida's anti-gay adoption ban by broadly painting lesbian and gay people as mentally ill, suicidal, and physically violent.
I can't imagine that you would quietly stand by and allow your employees to make such bigoted statements about any other minority, and I won't let you do it to Florida's gay community.
I demand you publicly apologize for the despicable, dehumanizing rhetoric of your Deputy Solicitor General.

On Wednesday, August 26th, FL Attorney General Bill McCollum's Deputy Solicitor General defended Florida's anti-gay adoption ban by saying...
``There is evidence that homosexuals have higher rates of mental disorders, suicide rates and domestic violence. This is a plausible rationale.''
-Timothy D. Osterhaus
Florida's Attorney General is relying on long discredited junk science to smear a segment of the population and justify an indefensible blatant form of state-sanctioned discrimination.
Sign this letter to let Florida's Attorney General know that he, above all, should know discrimination is wrong.
