Are you paying attention, Senator Bennett? Your peers, and by virtue, President, are addressing “disrespecting women” and there you are, checking out nudie photos of women during a Senate meeting. That’s great. Maybe if you were paying more attention to what’s going on, you’d see that the measures being addressed at the meeting were the same ones going against your own beliefs.
The conference was held to discuss a possible requirement to force women seeking abortions to purchase (out of their pockets) an ultrasound to check out the baby that they, for whatever reason, don’t want. Psst … did you forget? You’re the one who’s so vehemently against forcing women to get pre-abortion ultrasounds, even though you’re anti-choice to begin with … or was that just a facade to gain more state popularity?
Bennett speaks to the Sunshine State News and defends his actions:
“[The email was sent by a woman] who happens to be a former court administrator … I was just sitting there, bored as they were debating the abortion bill.”
“Bored … as they were debating the abortion bill.”
I just have no words.
Congratulations, Senator Bennett, you deserve the Holy-Crap-What’s-This-Guy-Doing-In-Government award today. Many, many are considered, but few are overtly chosen.
… And by the way, in case you weren’t paying attention: the measure passed the Florida House and women in your state are now required to get a pre-abortion ultrasound.
