Rights groups are calling on staffers at Oklahoma's State Capitol to resign after an email warning lawmakers of visiting LGBTQ students began circulating through the building.

The Monday morning email appears to be sent by Karen Kipgen, an Oklahoma House staffer supervising the page program, who notified lawmakers that pages had been given permission to use the restrooms that were usually off-limits to them for the day.

“As per the Speaker’s office, Pages are being allowed to access the ladies restroom across from 401, for today. again , there are cross-dressers in the building,” Kipgen’s email read.

The email was prompted by 70 students who were escorted to the capitol by Oklahomans for Equality, an LGBTQ rights advocacy group, to lobby for awareness and education on HIV/AIDS awareness day.

They've got their work cut out for them, don't they?
