One of the Congresscritters who voted for that measure just got busted on a cocaine charge. Really:
WASHINGTON — In September, Rep. Trey Radel voted for Republican legislation that would allow states to make food stamp recipients pee in cups to prove they’re not on drugs. In October, police busted the Florida Republican on a charge of cocaine possession.
“It’s really interesting it came on the heels of Republicans voting on everyone who had access to food stamps get drug tested,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told BuzzFeed Tuesday. “It’s like, what?”
This writer has long advocated the drug testing of politicos, and said so each and every time someone advocated such testing for the poor. Usually, people treat it as humor. But it is meant in all seriousness.
And now, hopefully, people will realize that it is not a joke. Unlike those stupid f***s who advocate drug testing the poor, but not the politicians who pass such laws. They, if you like, are the real jokes.
