The New York Post reported, “A video also surfaced of what appeared to be the freshman rep clad in a black dress and sunglasses, boasting about performing as a drag queen at the Pride parade in the Rio suburb of Niteroi in 2005.”

The media continues to make outrageous claims about my life while I am working to deliver results.
I will not be distracted nor fazed by this.

The GOP is going to regret allowing him to take his seat.
