What Did This US Politician Do?

A Republican figure has sparked uproar by sharing a video in which she uses a flamethrower to set ablaze LGBTQ-inclusive books. 

Valentina Gomez, a Missouri secretary of state candidate, posted the video as part of her campaign efforts. In the footage, Gomez declares, “This is what I will do to the grooming books when I become secretary of state. 

These books come from a Missouri public library. When I’m in office, they will burn.” The 24-year-old asserts that, if elected, she will incinerate all books that she believes “groom, indoctrinate, and sexualize children.”
