Kelly Kessler signed Call on the Coffee County DA to Resign 2019-06-14 12:35:53 -0500As witnessed by your own words, Coffee County D.A. Northcott, you are unable to uphold the spirit of the U.S. Constitution, specifically the tenet that all are equal under the law. Your actions and statements give Tennessee a black eye, and justifiably leave Coffee County citizens concerned that both their civil rights and just application of the law will be disregarded by you in favor of your bigotry.
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.
