Johnson previously worked for the Alliance Defending Freedom, a conservative law firm that played a pivotal role in the case that led the U.S. Supreme Court to strike down protected federal access to abortion.
The Southern Poverty Law Center, a civil rights organization that tracks and labels hate groups, named the alliance a hate group in 2016, the same year Johnson won election to Congress.
“The man who was just elected speaker of the House used to be the spokesperson for a designated hate group,” said Emily Amick in an Oct. 25 video on her Instagram account “Emily In Your Phone,” which offers political commentary and analysis.
