It's Time to Run This Anti-Gay GOP Wife Out of Politics [View all]

Michael Daly

Whether or not the allegations that Florida GOP head Christian Ziegler raped a Sarasota woman two months ago are substantiated, there will remain an affidavit that the police submitted to secure a search warrant for his phone.

And this sworn document attests that Ziegler’s wife, Bridget, acknowledged that she and her husband had consensual sex with this same woman a year ago.

Were Bridget Ziegler somebody else, the appropriate response to news that she had sex with another woman a year ago would have been: So what? Who cares if it was a thousand times?

But Bridget Ziegler has made herself a national figure by stoking anti-LGBTQ+ bigotry.

She co-founded Moms for Liberty, designated an extremist group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

She is on the Sarasota County School Board and served as its chair until her term expired last week.
