Senator Mallory McMorrow blasts Lana Theis in viral speech

It started with a prayer, but the fight escalated quickly.

By Tuesday morning, a state lawmaker took to the Senate floor to defend itself against a completely unfounded allegation from another legislator that she wants to “groom and sexualize kindergartners.”

State Sen. Mallory McMorrow, D-Royal Oak, decried the political attack by Sen. Lana Theis, a Brighton Republican who made the accusation in a recent campaign fundraising email without providing any evidence to support it.

“I am the biggest threat to your hollow, hateful scheme. Because you can not claim that you are targeting marginalized kids in the name of ‘parental rights’ if another parent is standing up to say no,” McMorrow said, at times peering over toward Theis.

“You say, ‘She’s a groomer. She supports pedophilia. She wants children to believe that they were responsible for slavery and to feel bad about themselves because they are white.'”
