TX Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick compares Nancy Pelosi to a 'slaveholder' for her border policy

Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick is upping his partisan rhetoric on crime at the border, labeling U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as a “slaveholder” who is “almost treasonous” because of her positions on the issue.

“It’s almost treasonous what she’s doing — selling out this country,” Patrick said of Pelosi Wednesday night on the FOX News Channel. “I view her as nothing more than a slaveholder because she’s in charge of not helping these people, these poor young girls.”

Earlier in the interview, Patrick talked about how gangs and cartels are engaged in sex trafficking along the Mexican border, calling it a form of modern day slavery that forces immigrant women into prostitution.

“This is an example of absurdity bordering on nonsense,” said Pelosi spokesman Jorge Aguilar. “Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick knows and should act better. His comments, which are beneath the dignity of the office he holds, are just another reason why Texans are fleeing the Republican Party in droves ... ”

In May 2012, acrimony between Patrick and fellow Republican state senator John Carona was widely reported throughout Texas. In an email exchange, Patrick accused Carona of spreading false rumors about Patrick's marriage. Carona denied that, and additionally denied having commented on Patrick's sexuality - Carona further said to Patrick: "I've never been shy about sharing my dislike and distrust of you. Put bluntly, I believe you are a snake oil salesman, a narcissist that would say anything to draw attention to himself."


nickname - "the Silver-tongued Devil".

He doesn't give a rats arse about women.....
