Lawmaker Patted On Arm By Male Colleague Fears He Won't Be Seen As Straight Anymore

Said Metcalfe, interrupting Bradford: "Representative Bradford, look, I'm a heterosexual. I don't like men, as you might", Metcalfe, R-Cranberry, told Rep. Matthew Bradford, D-Montgomery County, during a State Government Committee meeting.

"It's like keep your hands to yourself", Metcalfe, who has a lengthy anti-gay history, continued. "If you want to touch somebody, you might have people on your side of the aisle that might like it, I don't".

Bradford, a Democrat, appeared to be stunned by the comments. Bradford is its minority chairman. One member appeared to hide her face from the camera with her hand.

"We are officially off the rails", he responded.

"Then beg, don't touch", Metcalfe said.

"I don't know where we go from here", was all Bradford could say. It should be noted that Rep. Bradford is also married to a woman and has four children.

Pittsburgh's Action News 4 reached out for comment from Metcalfe and has not heard back.

This year, Metcalfe complained that Sims had called him an "ignorant, racist bigot".

"State Representative Daryl Metcalfe has always been a problem in Harrisburg", Pa. Democrats wrote in a released statement.

"You can't make this stuff up!"

The Pennsylvania Democratic Party is calling for the resignation of a GOP lawmaker after an outburst during a committee meeting. Other lawmakers in the room laughed out of shock or embarrassment over Metcalfe's remarks. "In this day in age, that's really inappropriate".

Bradford was clearly taken aback at the chastising from Metcalfe, who is the committee chair.

"I don't know what [Bradford's sexuality] is", he said.

Not everyone likes to be touched.

"I think that whole thing says a lot about the gentleman", Bradford said. "I've tried to calm him down". "It tells you something about the status of our politics in America today if [Metcalfe's words are] somehow acceptable or appropriate".

When the Supreme Court recognized same-sex marriages across the country in 2015, Metcalfe said the justices displayed "judicial tyranny", according to PennLive.
