Tales from the Capitol

Posted By on Fri, Mar 4, 2011 at 11:44 AM

A legislative story going around:

It was during the battle over the bill to fluoridate water supplies. A House member supportive of the legislation, one who happens to have a booming voice, found himself engaged in debate with an anti-fluoridation woman by the elevator on the first floor. Finally, he'd had enough.

"You are a stupid motherf*****," he told the woman.

A man standing next to the woman said:

"Did you just call my wife a stupid motherf*****?"

Said the legislator:

"If you're with her, you're a stupid motherf***** too."

As the story goes, a police officer happened to be standing nearby and separated the antagonists before physical mayhem.
