WI's own Glenn Grothman - racist bigoted asshole shows true colors. Again.

You may remember Grothman from such gems as:

"He opposed a provision in a 2010 sex education law that prohibited teachers from promoting bias based on sexual orientation, saying that he did not believe the topic should be discussed at all in the public schools. According to the Capitol Times, Grothman's opposition was based on "the belief that instructors who lead these talks would have what he called an "agenda" to persuade students to become gay."

In February 2012, Grothman introduced Senate Bill 507, which would amend Wisconsin statutes to emphasize single parenthood as a contributing factor to child abuse and neglect. He also sponsored State Bill 202, which would have repealed the Equal Pay Enforcement Act, saying that the "Left and the social welfare establishment want children born out of wedlock because they are far more likely to be dependent on the government.

Speaking in support of Governor Scott Walker's decision to repeal the Wisconsin Equal Pay Act, Grothman stated that he believes that money is more important to men than to women, and women do not therefore need as much.

He is a co-sponsor of Senate Bill 19 (2011), which removes the requirement of mandatory disinfection of groundwater in municipal water systems, a requirement that was imposed in reaction to a Cryptosporidium outbreak in 1993, which killed at least 104 citizens of Milwaukee, and sickened thousands of others.

During the protests, Grothman was cornered by almost 200 pro-union protesters yelling "Shame! Shame!" outside the state capitol building. Grothman said he was not concerned about violence at the time, adding that, "They're loud, they'll give you the finger, and they yell at you, but I really think deep down inside they're just mostly college kids having fun, just like they're having fun sleeping with their girlfriends on air mattresses. That's the guts of that crowd." He also described the protesters as "a different breed of person" and "a bunch of slobs taking up the building."


Well, here's his latest 'issue':

1. The man is a total pig.

I don't have a clear idea of the area he represents, but I'd like to know where the dolts live who keep putting him back in office (so I can avoid their area, and sorry if you live there or near there.)

10. You got that right

We MUST get rid of Walker in 2014. And I have no answer to the illegal redistricting, but man, that problem MUST be solved also.

11. In Texas, we took our hard right turn after Tom Delay got the Rethugs a mid decade re-districting.

Texans used to draw districts after every census only! Hope it does not work out the same for you guys!

7. Another bigoted voice in the war on Kwannza

I'm sure he's wondering why "they" aren't contented at having the right to live within redlines and vote at fewer voting machines.
