During the proceedings for the passing of the Hate Crimes Bill in the House, one woman stood up with a rather ignorant voice against the bill. Virginia Foxx of North Carolina decided that the whole issue was really over a murder committed during a robbery, and not about a boy who killed because he was gay. What an idiot!
Matthew Shepard's mom was deeply offended by this.
Foxx went back on record as saying that she had a poor word choice, but not apoligizing for her idiotic comments. What a bitch!
P.S. I love Rachel Maddow!
