Larry Brown does it again

Here’s the latest from homophobic Republican state Rep. Larry Brown, who last year referred to  “queers” and “legislative fruitloops” when he heard that Equality NC was giving its legislative award to House Speaker Joe Hackney.

Now it is people infected with HIV that Brown doesn’t care to help.

On the HIV issue, Brown went on to say that he doesn’t think the government should fund programs for adults with HIV who “caused it by the way they live.”

“I’m not opposed to helping a child born with HIV or something, but I don’t condone spending taxpayers’ money to help people living in perverted lifestyles,” said Brown, who ran unopposed in the November election to win a fourth term.

Reached by telephone Tuesday, Brown wouldn’t say what he considers perverted, but did say that adults who get HIV through sexual behavior or drugs would be among those who should not be treated at government expense.
