Kristina Counts signed Call on the Coffee County DA to Resign 2019-06-18 09:21:33 -0500Northcott needs to resign. A DA who refuses to represent everyone needs to resign. Our Muslim and LGBTQ neighbors should have protection under the law just like anyone else. Northcott’s statements are a good reminder why we have separation of church and state.
Coffee County District Attorney Craig Northcott has made anti-Muslim statements and said that he does not treat LGBTQ people experiencing domestic violence the same as other survivors. He can no longer effectively serve the people of Coffee County or the thousands of people who visit Coffee County each year for Bonnaroo.422 signatures
We call on Craig Northcott to resign the office of District Attorney for Coffee County. His anti-Muslim statements and his admission that he does not treat LGBTQ domestic violence cases with respect are disqualifying for office. He must step down so that the people of Coffee County can be served by a District Attorney who will apply the law according to the principle of equal protection.
