No Place but Texas: State Representative Tony Tinderholt
From the Texas Tribune
We have a saying here in Texas “We do things bigger in Texas”. It isn’t really true, but its a cheap simple minded saying to make Texas seem like it’s something it isn’t. But Texas does have some of the biggest idiots elected to office. Case in point State Representative Tony Tinderholt.
This past session Tinderholt filed a bill that would completely ban abortions. From Elle:
Rep. Tony Tinderholt (R-Arlington) introduces the Abolition of Abortion in Texas Act, a bill so extreme that it would criminalize abortion and make women “personally responsible” for having sex. The bill, which went nowhere, would ban all abortions, even in cases of rape and incest. It would give law enforcement permission to charge women and their doctors with murder.
“Personally responsible” for having sex. Yeah. That is a hoot coming from Tinderholt. If you don’t know, Tinderholt is one of these holier than thou ultra “conservatives”. And get this…..he has been married FIVE times! Not once like “One Man, One Woman” but FIVE times like “One Man, One Woman, at One Time”. If a religious freedom bill is passed, he may never find someone to bake a cake for his next wedding.
There are so many political idiots in Texas, I think I will make this a reoccurring post.
Representative Tony Tinderholt. No Place but Texas.
