How to Catch an Opportunist

Glenn Grothman has issued a jaw-dropping attack on efforts to protect teenagers from unwanted pregnancy. He’s making the ludicrous claim that family planning programs for teenagers are somehow encouraging sexual predators.

This isn’t an interpretation. He issued a press release entitled: “Grothman Attempts to Stop State from Encouraging Sexual Predators.”

Whether it’s placating the right wing extremists or continuing to build that bridge to the 19th century, Grothman has outdone himself on this one.
