Pennsylvania lawmaker to colleague: 'I'm heterosexual … keep your hands to yourself'

The controversy surrounding state Rep. Daryl Metcalfe’s comments to state Rep. Matt Bradford

Metcalf also said Wednesday it's alright for gays to flaunt their life style and say who they are, but when someone says they're heterosexual, it's somehow offensive.

Metcalfe later told the Tribune-Review that Bradford has touched his arm or shoulder often during meetings in recent months even though he has asked Bradford to stop. He previously helped lead an unsuccessful effort to impeach then-Attorney General Kathleen Kane because she didn't enforce the state's former ban on same-sex marriage, and he once used a procedural maneuver to prevent an openly gay colleague from speaking on the House floor because he believed the colleague would "say things that I believe are open rebellion against God". "Some on his side of the aisle might like it, go touch them, don't touch me - obviously he likes to touch me, he kept touching me and touching and touching me", Metcalfe told KDKA.

"We are officially off the rails", Bradford responded.

'My intent was just to beg for your permission for about 30 seconds, ' Bradford, of Montgomery County, said.

Bradford, who is married with children, denied touching Metcalfe on objective to get a rise, and said the Republican overreacted.

Pennsylvania democrats are calling for a State representative to resign after a controversial outburst. The most homophobic, transphobic, racist, sexist, xenophobic member of our government is using legislative time, and tax payer dollars, to interrupt a meeting to announce his sexual orientation'.

Gov. Tom Wolf and the Democratic Party of Pennsylvania are now calling for Metcalfe's removal from the committee and resignation from office.

'I don't know what [Bradford's sexuality] is, ' he said. Yesterday Metcalfe defended his position. I've tried to calm him down'.

Bradford added that he was not making a pass at Metcalfe.

'I have no idea what goes on in his head, and some days I'm glad for that, ' Bradford said.

Daryl Metcalfe, a Cranberry Republican, should resign over alleged homophobic remarks.
