Take it back Todd

What a stupid wanker.

Jason —

I wasn't planning on emailing you this morning.

But if you read what I just read, you’d know it’s time for action.

Last night, Republican Rep. Todd Tiahrt crossed the line when he asked on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives whether President Obama’s mother would have “taken advantage of [an abortion].”

That’s a step too far even for a politician known for his radical, conservative platform.

In fact, he was immediately booed by his own colleagues in the House. 

Look, abortion is an incredibly emotional and important issue that deserves to be debated. But it deserves to be debated by adults; not ideologues seeking to score cheap political points.

This kind of politics is divisive, inappropriate, and disrespectful to the thousands of Kansans he serves.

While Todd Tiahrt’s colleagues are busy fixing our economy and repairing our broken health care system, he’s appealing to his right-wing base as he seeks the Republican nomination for Senate.

If anything, his comments are proof that he is unfit to serve the people of Kansas as a U.S. Senator.

Running to your base is common practice in politics, but this is one stone thrown too far. If Rep. Tiahrt truly seeks to represent all Kansans, not just far right Republicans, then he’ll apologize immediately.

Let’s take a stand against the politics of old.

Join your fellow Kansans and demand our elected officials do better.

Thank you,
