The Worst of the Worst
The DLCC sent us their Worst of the Worst site today. It’s their compendium of all the things that Republican state legislators have said since March 2013, when the GOP released their Autopsy Report, which promised less offensive rhetoric. We all know how that turned out…
No surprise that they sent this to us. Exposing assholes is what we do. They put up their top 25 list, so I thought it would be interesting to see how many of them we featured here. Certainly we’d miss a few since we started the site on May 4, 2013, two months later than their starting point.
25 Worst of the Worst Republican State Legislators
1. Alaska State Senator Pete Kelly
Proposed free pregnancy tests in bars; called birth control “social engineering”
We named Pete Kelly Asshole of the Day for this on March 24 for this.15. Nevada State Assemblyman Jim Wheeler
Nominated for Asshole of the Day, but didn’t win.
20. South Dakota State Senator Phil Jensen
We named Phil Jensen Asshole of the Day on March 18 for this.
22. Virginia State Senator Steve Martin
We named Martin Asshole of the Day on February 24 for this.
25. Wisconsin State Senator Glenn Grothman
Grothman has been nominated on the site twice, but hasn’t won. His most recent nomination was for proposing that mother-in-laws get a legal say in whether a woman can have an abortion.
So we had 5 of their top 25. If anything, this proves there’s no end to the assholes in politics these days.
