There's fifty entries. I'll take them ten at a time.
per the Rolling Stone Magazine. If you do take the time to go into the website each person has a link to the original story. Some are just tweets. Some are more substantial news stories. But the first think I thought of was; you could only find fifty? And the state with the majority of the off the wall statements? Starts with a T and ends with an S. Although to be fair, some of the commenters made the list more than once. And they didn't include what I consider Louie Gohmert's most insulting statement. He told a woman who chose a late term abortion because the baby was facing a diagnosis of a fatal birth defect that she should have carried to term. Reason? Doctor's have been known to make mistakes. I made the mistake of looking up the condition just before going to bed. The fetus basically had no brain above the part that controls autonomic functions. You can't miss it on the scans and THERE IS NO TREATMENT. Of everyone on the list I believe Louid Gohment takes the cake.
