Demand that State Rep. of Tennessee Richard Floyd Resign

To be delivered to The Tennessee State House, The Tennessee State Senate, and Governor Bill Haslam

Petition Statement

State Rep. Richard Floyd does not have the right to threaten transgendered women in his state. Hate speech like this should not be tolerated! Stop the cycle of hate now!
There are currently 7,799 signatures. NEW goal - We need 10,000 signatures!

Petition Background

State Rep. Richard Floyd threatened to "stomp a mudhole" into any transgender woman who uses a public restroom in Tennessee. "Stomp a mudhole," according to Urban Dictionary, means "To tear someone a new ass, to beat them to near death or to otherwise hurt someone to the point that they can not fight back." We cannot tolerate such hate! Here is a link of an article to give you more information: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/mark-daniel-snyder/richard-floyd-transgender_b_1216713.html
