WASHINGTON (WMAL) – Two Democratic mothers blasted a Republican member of the Prince William County Board of Supervisors at a meeting Tuesday.
Evelyn and Heidi BruMar, of Gainesville, said their 15-year-old daughter was handing out sample ballots at Gainesville Middle School on election day when supervisor Jeanine Lawson (R-Brentsville) introduced herself to the teen. Their daughter told Lawson she had lesbian mothers and one of her moms didn’t like her. According to the moms, Lawson responded that every child deserves a mom and dad in a Biblical sense.
“When did it become acceptable for a woman who holds elected office to bully a child?” Heidi told the board during public comment at Tuesday’s meeting.
Evelyn said Lawson took advantage of her daughter and called Lawson’s behavior “inappropriate, unacceptable and unwelcome.”
Lawson told WMAL she rejects the accusation and said the mothers are completely mischaracterized the brief conversation she and other adults at the polling place had with her daughter.
“They’re completely distorting a pleasant conversation that I had with her,” Lawson said.
Lawson believes the mothers are just looking for any excuse to smear her and misrepresent her character because they reject her conservative values.
