Louie Gohmert (R-NSFW) takes issue against hate-crimes legislation because “sexual orientation” is too vague:
If you’re oriented toward animals, bestiality, then, you know, that’s not something that can be used, held against you or any bias be held against you for that. Which means you’d have to strike any laws against bestiality, if you’re oriented toward corpses, toward children, you know, there are all kinds of perversions.
Whew. Is it hot in here? We may have to revive Stinque After Dark just to run excerpts from the Congressional Record.
