6. State Se­nate District 6 can­di­date Jaha Howard

GA Voice - - Front Page -

Ge­or­gia Voice broke the story in Oc­to­ber of Jaha Howard’s anti-LGBT, misog­y­nis­tic stances via posts on the can­di­date’s Face­book page. Said posts and links ad­ver­tised Howard’s hard­line bib­li­cal be­lief that women should only teach other women. He also shared a post about the ho­mo­sex­ual “agenda” in ed­u­ca­tion. His cam­paign man­ager re­signed af­ter the news went pub­lic.

Howard apol­o­gized, but then pro­ceeded to reaf­firm the same con­tro­ver­sial be­liefs in the en­su­ing com­ment thread — that be­ing gay is a sin, it may be a choice and women do not be­long on the pul­pit.

He lost in the Dec. 5 runoff against at­tor­ney (and fel­low Demo­crat) Jen Jor­dan in state Se­nate District 6, which cov­ers parts of North­west At­lanta, Sandy Springs, Ma­ri­etta, Smyrna and Vin­ings.
