Ka, Arizona’s top education officialThy Hoffman is facing a lawsuit following a Breitbart News investigation that found the state Department of Education was promoting a sex chat site for LGBT minors.
Breitbart News previously reported that the Arizona Department of Education was promote the QCchat spacea chat service for LGBT teens offering conversations on various inappropriate topics.
Topics of conversation included witchcraft, “gay youth activism”, sex and relationships, and drag culture, along with other disturbing topics. Perhaps even more troubling, the chats feature a quick escape button intended to help users hide the site from onlookers, including parents.
As a result of the Breitbart News investigation, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Kathy Hoffman is facing a lawsuit, filed in Maricopa County Superior Court.
The Arizona Republican Party ran an ad for Tom Horne, who is running against Hoffman in November.

The ad explains that innocent discussions about Pokemon, Marvel or Star Wars are used to lure minors, who are then invited to have conversations about sex with adults, all without parental approval.
The ad calls QChat “a sexual predator’s dream” and notes that “Democrat Kathy Hoffman is using your tax dollars to push it on our kids.”
“Let’s fire Kathy Hoffman and remove her dangerous wide-awake views from our schools,” the ad concludes.
Hoffman defended the chat, erroneously calling it “an important resource for young LGBTQ people looking to build community.”
Thank you for showing how to use this important resource for LGBTQ youth looking to build community. It’s not always easy, but it is possible to be yourself and to be loved.
And for parents, the department also has resources to support your child. https://t.co/kl2dnVZ4Z0 pic.twitter.com/p1LhI4EAZc

Also Breitbart News revealed that the Center for Disease Control (CDC) was promoting the secret chat site, prompting eight different members of Congress, led by Rep. Dan Bishop (R-NC), to write a letter to the CDC demanding answers.
