A dispute over transgender rights has gotten personal between Congresswoman Marie Newman of Illinois and Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia.
TERRELL BROWN: A dispute between an Illinois congresswoman and her Republican colleague from Georgia became personal. Congresswoman Marie Newman, whose daughter is transgender, spoke in favor of a bill banning discrimination against LGBTQ Americans. Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene tried to block the bill. So Newman put a transgender flag outside Greene's office. Greene responded by putting a sign up outside Newman's office which says, "There are only two genders."
Illinois Congressman Adam Kinzinger asked his fellow Republicans to stop her attacks. In a tweet, he said, "This garbage must end."
