Today is my birthday and to celebrate I thought I would pick out my favorite state story and write about it. Well Happy Birthday to me, because both Kansas and Missouri had two state story doozies to choose from leaving me unable to pick between the two.
So ladies and gentlemen….I give you a TIE for the birthday bombtastic stories of the day. One from Kansas and the other from Missouri and it leaves me wondering how I manage to straddle this cray-cray state line sometimes.
How about we start with Kansas, Rep. John Bradford, R-Lansing, who decided it would be a super duper idea as a Kansas lawmaker to take to Facebook with a highly offensive meme and a post –
Rep. John Bradford, R-Lansing, shared a meme on his Facebook page depicting a mustachioed man in a sombrero and a deformed image of President Obama. The image is accompanied with this message: “MEXICAN WORDS OF THE DAY: PIZZA CHIP BELIEVING.”
From the bill-
“For purposes of subdivision (2) of this subsection, the term ‘gift’ shall include sexual relations between a registered lobbyist and a member of the general assembly or his or her staff. Relations between married persons or between persons who entered into a relationship prior to the registration of the lobbyist, the election of the member to the general assembly, or the employment of the staff person shall not be reportable under this subdivision. The reporting of sexual relations for purposes of this subdivision shall not require a dollar valuation.”
If you are married, don’t fret you are exempt from the gift list. What if you are married, but screwing around on your spouse do you have to list it? I’m probably asking too many questions.
