Careful Pam… keep up that animal rights rhetoric, and the FBI might label you a “terrorist.” It’s in the P-I:
Reports on an animal cruelty investigation at a farm near Enumclaw show Washington state needs a law against bestiality, state Sen. Pam Roach says.
Roach, R-Auburn, said Monday she plans to introduce legislation that would make it a Class C felony to have sex with an animal, punishable by as much as five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
Hmm. I’m guessing Pam didn’t grow up on a farm in Georgia?
Of course, Pam has a long history of advocating against animal cruelty… which I suppose explains why a little more than two years after 63% of voters approved an initiative banning the cruel use of bait and hounds to hunt black bears and cougars, Pam testified in support of a House bill that would have allowed it. (Which, by the way, is yet another example of right-wing defenders of the initiative process honoring the “will of the people” only when the people agree with them.)
Hey… nice catch by reader David, who noticed that HB 1012 included an emergency clause. Yeah, that’s right… hunting bears and cougars with bait and dogs was an emergency. What a bunch of hypocrites.
