TN GOP Lawmaker: Virtually impossible to get AIDS through heterosexual sex
Tennessee state Sen. Stacey Campfield (R) falsely claimed on Thursday that it was nearly impossible for someone to contract AIDS through heterosexual contact.
‘Most people realize that AIDS came from the homosexual community,’ he told Michelangelo Signorile, who hosts a radio program on SiriusXM OutQ. ‘It was one guy screwing a monkey, if I recall correctly, and then having sex with men. It was an airline pilot, if I recall.’
‘My understanding is that it is virtually — not completely, but virtually — impossible to contract AIDS through heterosexual sex.’
