Texas Congressman Lance Gooden is calling for the chair of the Dallas Democratic Party to resign after uncovering “misogynistic and homophobic” tweets from his past.

“No wonder Dallas Mayor [Eric Johnson] switched to [the Republican Party],” Gooden (R-TX) said on social media. “Instead of calling on Johnson to resign, misogynistic and homophobic [Dallas County Democratic Party] Chairman [Kardal Coleman] should step down himself.”

Gooden posted a picture on X, formerly known as Twitter, depicting posts on the social media site that Coleman allegedly wrote but later deleted on September 27.

No timestamps or dates for when the posts were allegedly sent out were included in the image. The Dallas Express contacted both Rep. Gooden and Coleman for comment but received no response by press time.

In a statement to The Dallas Express, Gooden said “America-hating” Democrat leaders in Dallas are just like those in Washington, D.C.

“They want open borders while defunding the police. Eric Johnson wanted nothing to do with them and now they’re lashing out because he’s exposed their failed policies and been successful implementing Republican values that have made Dallas great,” he said.

Gooden represents Texas’ 5th congressional district, which includes the eastern portion of Dallas County along with much of Kaufman County. As Gooden noted in his post, Coleman recently called for the resignation of Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson after he joined the Republican Party.

“Dallas voters are frustrated, they feel deceived and feel they have been defrauded,” Coleman told The Dallas Morning News in an article published September 27 — the same day the tweets were allegedly deleted.

“We’re creating a space for Dallas voters to be heard,” the chair said.

While the party is leading efforts to demand Johnson’s resignation, Coleman said the party is not currently pursuing any recall efforts.

The same cannot be said of other movements, as a “Recall Mayor Johnson” campaign launched shortly after Johnson announced his plan to switch parties.

As previously covered by The Dallas Express, Mayor Johnson announced that he is joining the Republican Party in an op-ed published on September 22.

Johnson then explained further that he believes the Democratic Party is anti-police. He said one of the key reasons he became a Republican was the Democrats’ support of the “Defund the Police” movement and left-wing policies that favor criminals over law-abiding citizens.

“This party is really serious about protecting the criminal element over the law-abiding folks and that they weren’t really going to change,” he said.
