Well, the Michael Sam backlash has hit Washington.
Washington lobbyist Jack Burkman announced that he is preparing legislation that would ban gay athletes from joining the NFL. Burkman said he has garnered political support for the bill, though his statement didn’t mention any specific lawmakers.
Burkman's statement reads, "We are losing our decency as a nation. Imagine your son being forced to shower with a gay man. That’s a horrifying prospect for every mom in the country. What in the world has this nation come to?" (The Hill)
