Here is what was said:
BOY SCOUTS AND GIRL SCOUTS (House of Representatives - June 05,
(Mr. TRAFICANT asked and was given permission to address the House for
1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
Mr. TRAFICANT: Mr. Speaker, a California court ruled that the Boy
Scouts do not have to accept girls. Scouts honor. Check this out,
13-year-old Katrina Yah sued, her attorney said the Boy Scouts of
America is a business, therefore under California law, she should be
allowed in. Beam me up, Mr. Speaker. What is next?
Boys suing the Girl Scouts . Sons suing the Daughters of the American
Revolution. Grandpas suing the Brownies. Teenagers suing the AARP?
Think about it. I believe that there is really nothing wrong in
America with boys being boys and girls being girls. Think about it.
Yield back the Cub Scouts .
Assistant Scoutmaster, Troop 59
