Republican Virginia Rep. Bob Good, the chairman of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, insinuated the Daily Caller was “leftist” for pointing out that his deputy communications director had pronouns in her LinkedIn bio.

Although Abigail Angelos’ LinkedIn bio says she has been employed at the House of Representatives since Feb. 2023, a communications staffer for Good told the Daily Caller that Angelos began working for Good in Nov. 2023. The pronouns “She/Her” were placed next to her name in her LinkedIn bio as of Thursday afternoon. She removed her pronouns after being contacted by the Daily Caller.

“I thought it was just the leftist mainstream media who wrote click-bait stories with cheap shots at conservative junior staffers,” Good said in a statement to the Daily Caller.

Angelos also appeared to have worked at Fox Corporation as a producer’s associate from August 2021 to February 2023, according to her LinkedIn bio. Fox has a history of using preferred pronouns when covering people who identify as transgender, most notably in the case of Dylan Mulvaney. Fox News channel also aired an entire segment in June 2022 about a family who allowed a 5-year-old child to transition.

Good has mocked pronouns and has staunchly opposed pro-transgender legislation, particularly when it involved minors. Good once called Democratic California Rep. Katie Porter “Person Speaker” rather than Madame Speaker, taking a jab at then-Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson, who said during her March 22, 2022 confirmation hearing that she could not define the term “woman.”

“Thank you, Person Speaker, and I say Person Speaker because I’m not a biologist, and out of respect to our Supreme Court nominee, I don’t feel qualified to say Madame Speaker,” Good said.

The House Freedom Caucus is made up of some of the most conservative members of Congress. Members of the caucus include Reps. Chip Roy of Texas, Lauren Boebert of Colorado, Mary Miller of Illinois, Jim Jordan of Ohio and Byron Donalds of Florida.
