Anti-LGBTQ activist who warns of ‘groomers’ forced out of teaching for inappropriate relationships with students

Patricia Kent, the founder of the right-wing Liberty Action Coalition, resigned from her teaching job in 1996 over her inappropriate and overly familiar relationships with female students, but more recently she has claimed drag shows were grooming children for immoral purposes, reported The Salt Lake Tribune.

Kent’s teaching certificate was eventually revoked in 1998 for unprofessional conduct, which included intimate personal relationships with students and inappropriate discussions of religion, and she filed a federal lawsuit against the state school board that was settled in 2000 and dismissed with prejudice, which means it cannot be filed again.

“It’s absurd that 26 years later, people are making a big issue out of this,” said Kent, who is national chair of the Independent American Party.
