Laura Franklin signed Call on the Coffee County DA to Resign 2019-06-14 10:32:57 -0500We do not live in a theocracy. Please keep your religious views out of our government. You are a public servant meant to serve all people, even those different than yourself. If you can’t uphold that vow, you need to resign immediately. There is no room for hate, prejudice and discrimination in our public systems.
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.433 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.
