Kentucky Cited in Need for Federal Law

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is citing the 2012 firing of a Kentucky police sergeant as the reason Congress should pass the Employment and Non-Discrimination Act. The Democrat says Kile Nave was dismissed from the Audubon Park force in Metro Louisville after he complained that he was being harassed because he’s gay…

Reid says that’s why a federal law is needed. Last month, the Metro Louisville Human Relations Commission ruled that Nave was  discriminated against because of his sexual orientation.
