Royal Oak State Senator Lashes Out After Being Accused of Wanting to “Groom” and “Sexualize” Kindergarteners

LANSING, MICHIGAN, April 21, 2022 ~ Democratic State Senator Mallory McMorrow retaliated against Republican State Senator Lana Theis in a Senate Floor speech Tuesday after Theis accused McMorrow of wanting to “groom” and “sexualize” kindergarteners.

I didn’t expect to wake to the news that the Senator from the 22nd District had overnight, accused me by name, of grooming and sexualizing children in an e-mail fundraising for herself,” said the Royal Oak Democrat. “I am a straight, white, Christian, married, suburban mom … I want every kid to feel seen, heard and supported … not marginalized and targeted because they are not straight, white, and Christian.”

Theis declined to speak on the Senate floor after McMorrow, and did not speak to any media sources until today, when she first appeared on 760 WJR’s “All Talk with Tom Jordan and Kevin Dietz.”
