Every year, Iowa hosts the Governor’s Conference on LGBTQ Youth, organized by Iowa Safe Schools, an anti-bullying group. The incredibly far-right radio host Jan Mickelson and at least one state legislator are calling for the organizers to be criminally prosecuted. Seriously.
On Friday, [Rep. Greg] Heartsill spoke to talk show host Jan Mickelson, who frequently hosts GOP presidential candidates on his Iowa-based program, about the conference, and was also joined by Republican state Rep. Steve Holt.
Mickelson was so outraged about the event that he said that the organizers should be criminally prosecuted for violating obscenity laws, and Heartsill said that he plans to be in contact with the county attorney for Polk County, where the conference was held, to see if summit organizers broke the law.
