Log Cabin Republicans executive director resigns after Trump endorsement
As fallout from the decision continues to cascade

Jerri Ann Henry, the first woman to head the Log Cabin Republicans, has resigned, the latest fallout from the group’s controversial endorsement of President Trump’s re-election campaign.

The organization’s chairman and vice chair announced the endorsement in a surprise op-ed in the Washington Post, writing that “we know that ‘Inclusion Wins’ is a mantra we share with the president.”

LCR board member Jennifer Horn had previously resigned, saying “There is no world where I can sit down at the dining room table and explain to my children that I just endorsed Donald Trump for president. It is contrary to everything that I have ever taught them about what it means to be a good, decent, principled member of society.”

Donald Trump’s administration has taken numerous actions against LGBT+ Americans, most recently by asking the Supreme Court to rule that Title VII does not protect LGBT+ people from discrimination.

The President responded to the endorsement by saying: “Some of my biggest supporters are of that community. And I think they — and I talk to them a lot about it. I think I’ve done really very well with that community.”
