Kansas legislator suggests using hunters in helicopters to control illegal immigration, likens immigrants to feral hogs

Interesting. When Rep. Martin Harty (R) joked about sending the mentally disabled off to Siberia so they could save money - he resigned.

State GOP Party Chairman Jack Kimball said Harty's comments were inappropriate and he was satisfied with his decision to quit.

"He failed to represent the sentiments of his constituents and the core values and principles of the Republican Party," Kimball said.

This was handled with class and dignity and will be forgotten in a couple weeks. Also THIS won't drag the whole state GOP down unlike Kansas. And stop bringing up Obama. Until he makes a joke about mass murder - it's not the same. If he does - we can ask for his resignation. These people represent us.
