A Florida LGBTQ nonprofit revoked a job offer for an Alabama state lawmaker after she suggested that the state’s governor is gay and should be outed.

Alabama State Rep. Patricia Todd (D) is the state’s first openly gay state lawmaker, and was set to take a position as executive director of the One Orlando Alliance, an organization formed after the 2016 Pulse nightclub shooting.

The group retracted its offer after Todd made social media posts suggesting that Gov. Kay Ivey (R) was gay and should  be outed, according to AL.com.

“Will someone out her for God’s sake,” Todd wrote on Twitter. “I have heard for years that she is gay and moved her girlfriend out of her house when she became Gov. I am sick of closeted elected officials.”

The article goes on to state the following:

Jennifer Foster, the chairwoman of the One Orlando Alliance’s board, said in a statement that Todd’s comments are “not aligned” with the group’s values.

“We strongly believe that coming out is a personal choice and we do not support involuntarily outing,” Foster said.
