The following letter to the editor was published in The Daily Sun on Dec 14, 2023.
Rep. Greg Steube endorsed Christian Ziegler for Republican Party of Florida State Chair earlier this year. Steube has been silent on both Christian and Bridget Ziegler’s sexual scandal. Steube is not providing leadership.
Both Zieglers have led the hostile charge against LGBTQ+ rights in Florida. Moms for Liberty, cofounded by Bridget, promotes book banning in that assault. All the while, the Zieglers were participating in a sexual threesome. The hypocrisy of these self-proclaimed family values conservative public officials is revealing.
Steube has not condemned the Zieglers’ behavior or asked for their resignation. Where is Steube’s leadership and commitment to the principles and values he claims to hold as an anti-LGBTQ+ person? Steube doesn’t follow his own stated principles and values. Steube follows what is politically expedient to his politics. Steube is not showing leadership but demonstrating his own hypocrisy on proclaimed family values.
