D.C. lobbyist says he is preparing legislation to prohibit gays in the NFL

Wednesday, February 26, 2014

A top Washington lobbyist said this week he is preparing legislation that would prohibit gays fro playing in the NFL, and that he has the support of more than three dozen unnamed lawmakers.

Jack Burkman

The Hill reports that GOP strategist Jack Burkman said he came up with the idea after college football star Michael Sam publicly revealed he is gay a few weeks ago. If drafted, Sam would be the first openly gay player in the NFL.

“We are losing our decency as a nation,” Burkman said in a statement. “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?”

“If the NFL has no morals and no values, then Congress must find values for it,” Burkman said.

Burkman serves as founder and president of his own lobbying firm, Burkman Associates, but his efforts at banning gays from the NFL have already cost him at least one client.

On Tuesday, DC Solar Solutions, Inc., a California-based green energy company, told ThinkProgress that it would no longer allow Burkman to represent the company because of his comments.

The company’s CEO Jeffrey Carpoff and COO Paulette Carpoff released a joint statement saying that the company has “severed ties” with Burkman “effective immediately” and that “DC Solar does not condone or support Mr. Burkman’s homophobic views.”

Sam had his own response to Burkman’s alleged bill:

In an interview with The Huffington Post, Burkman said he would have 36 House members and five senators lined up to support the measure in three weeks.

Burkman also has a younger brother who is gay.

  2. Isn't that a qualification to be a lobbyist? Or is that no morals?

  12. He’s lost one client, and many others have condemned his political stunt. I think it backfired cuz gay rights are mainstream now along with blacks and women. Discrimination is really offensive to most moderates. It was a misfired joke which had blowback on him.

  41. Silly question– but does “National” in National Football League translate to “Federal”– I mean– what legislation could possibly come from Congress to regulate gay players being in the NFL? Is not this legislation doomed from the very inception of Burke’s thoughts to pursue it?

    Posted on Wednesday, February 26, 2014 at 5:12pm
  42. The NFL enjoys not-for-profit status because of the IRS. So yes, some legislation could possibly come down the pike. It won't happen, however, but it isn't because this asshat hasn't planted the seed in some minds.

  67. I think this is fake. The NFL already publicly stated, if anti gay laws are passed in Arizona they are withdrawing the Superbowl, and finding a new state to hold it. With a stating like that you would be stupid to even attempt to present this law, it will be shut down before it even begins.

Really too bad this fucking ignorant asshole does not understand that one of the greatest group of warriors known was a group of gay men who were married to each other. Then the fact many of the gladiators were gay and married to their fight friends. The knights of the Crusades were married to each other. The hate of this group is neo-Nazi in its development and truly Nazi in its fundamentals.

  243. I don’t understand why white male heterosexuals have this definitive need to try and fuck with LGBT folks. There is no other way to put it. I can’t pretty it up, I can’t put it into words that make it something it isn’t. Quit obsessing over something you aren’t; quit losing sleep over someone else. You are either envious of the lives we lead or outright jealous over how we manage to live our lives in the face of all the danger and crap we catch on a daily basis. Either way–we’d like to be left alone to live our lives in relative peace and quiet, pay our bills and go to work and take a vacation each year if we are lucky: you know, the GAY AGENDA that you all get all worked up over. My gay agenda today consists of vacuuming the living room, washing the few dishes in the kitchen and making sure the pups don’t pee on the floor since it’s raining outside ( I have to direct them to their peepee pads.) I am quite sure if you actually knew how boring the GAY AGENDA really was, you’d lose the term.

  288. But why does such an individual hate homosexuals so passionately? Oddly, he doesn’t hate the homosexual because he is homosexual; he hates him because he sees in the homosexual what he secretly fears he himself might become. He is most uncomfortable with his own natural, unavoidable, but minor homosexual tendencies, and so projects them. He thus comes to hate the homosexual inclinations in other people—but only because he first hates them in himself.

  301. So what happens to the Men who already in the NFL, and ARE homosexual? And this Schleb can’t be so stupid no to know they do exist. Already. I understand Russia is looking for another bigot. Maybe he will move.

    Posted on Wednesday, February 26, 2014 at 7:27pm
  304. Too late they have been playing in the NFL for years, nobody needs to know who they are or are not. Nobody’s business. Stop telling people things they don’t need to know about yourself and just go on about life.

  312. Wait, the NFL. Isn’t that separate from the government. How can a lawmaker tell a business who they can and can’t hire? Plus, why should anyone be prohibited from playing in the NFL. If their good at playing sports. Than that’s all that matters. And “If the NFL has no morals and no values, then Congress must find values for it,” Who is congress to decide what values people should follow? Everyone should be treated equally. And it’s not like gay people are gonna rape their teammates in the showers. The stupidity in some people.

  317. So, he’s pretty much an all-around scum bag. (Although I did read somewhere that he claims this is just a publicity stunt.)

    Posted on Wednesday, February 26, 2014 at 7:40pm
  318. This guy is so ignorant that he thinks that gays haven’t be in the NFL all along…what a dumbass. And he doesn’t support his own family member..just ignorant!

    Posted on Wednesday, February 26, 2014 at 7:41pm

    Posted on Wednesday, February 26, 2014 at 7:53pm
  327. Why would the mothers of grown men be concerned that their grown child was showering with a grown gay guy? Sounds a little sexually inappropriate. Thankfully he Is just a lobbyist and not up to him. So Good luck with that bro…Ass hat.

    Posted on Wednesday, February 26, 2014 at 8:11pm
  338. Why does anyone in government think they can tell the NFL what to do?

    Posted on Wednesday, February 26, 2014 at 8:11pm
  339. what gives him the right to do this?

    Posted on Wednesday, February 26, 2014 at 8:13pm
  340. So glad they are concerned with the real problems facing this country.

  347. Hahahahaha! Crazy

    Posted on Wednesday, February 26, 2014 at 8:25pm
  348. They like to waste money on useless legislation that goes nowhere and Noone really wants. If they are paying attention, the NFL is ok with having a gay player and the polls show the fans are ok with it also. The GOP just have to show what racist, homophobic, woman hating a-holes they really are. I think they should check with their Koch brother overlords to see if this is ok with them first

    Posted on Wednesday, February 26, 2014 at 8:26pm
  349. and true Americans are making an amendment to boot your ass from our country.

    Posted on Wednesday, February 26, 2014 at 8:26pm
  350. He ignorant. He might not say he is prejudice but his actions do. What do gay people do to anyone. We all bleed and breathe just like everyone else. This just reminds me of how they didnt like blacks back in the day. History repeats itself. People like him shouldnt have that place in the white house. To each his own.

    Posted on Wednesday, February 26, 2014 at 8:27pm
  351. Almost all my gay friends watch and go to see football games. If they ban gays from the NFL then, the NFL will be losing money. They should also be prohibit from tax exempt status.

    Posted on Wednesday, February 26, 2014 at 8:29pm
  352. good luck with that

    Posted on Wednesday, February 26, 2014 at 8:32pm
  353. Why can’t we all just get the hell along with each other. You can’t even enjoy sports without people talking about players personal life.

    Posted on Wednesday, February 26, 2014 at 8:40pm
  354. B bullshit

    Posted on Wednesday, February 26, 2014 at 8:41pm
  355. He is nothing but a ignorant bigot.

    Posted on Wednesday, February 26, 2014 at 8:43pm
  356. I find it sickening that anyone even thinks this way. The gay men in my life have been such a wonderful and positive influence on my son. Never once have I ever worried aout

    Posted on Wednesday, February 26, 2014 at 8:45pm
  357. about him in the shower. This is ridiculous and this guy is crazy!

    Posted on Wednesday, February 26, 2014 at 8:46pm
  358. I am so happy to see he has been fired. I wish I could have been there!

    Posted on Wednesday, February 26, 2014 at 8:47pm
  359. Speechless

    Posted on Wednesday, February 26, 2014 at 8:48pm
  360. Yeah, that’s so not going to work and here’s why. Even though the NFL teams privately owned, though governed by the NFL, but again privately owned and hugely profitable, they’ve had federal tax exemption, total exemption as in 0 federal taxes to pay, since the beginning. All the feds would have to do is end their tax exemption for these already rich owners, and just getting richer. Boy, once you put out there that members of the 1% might have to pay even 1% more in taxes, they tend to get pretty pissy about it.

    Posted on Wednesday, February 26, 2014 at 8:51pm
  361. Bringing “don’t ask, don’t tell” into the sporting industry. How stupid is he.
