- Karen Handel is the Republican candidate for Georgia’s 6th Congressional district. With the election to take place on Tuesday 20 June, Handel took part in a meet-and-greet on 16 June at a local sandwich shop.
A mother of a lesbian daughter spoke to Handel about her stance on LGBTI rights. In particular, she wanted to know about her daughter’s rights when it came to adopting children.
‘What protections do I have for her having a family in the future, wanting to adopt a kid?’ the mother asked.
‘I have to be honest,’ Handel replied. ‘My faith calls me to a different place on the issue.’ She went on to call her faith ‘compassionate.’
