Wisconsin GOP lawmaker calls protesters ‘slobs’
Wisconsin’s Republican State Sen. Glenn Grothman called protesters in the Capitol “slobs” for demonstrating against Gov. Scott Walker’s budget plan, which strips the collective bargaining rights of public employee unions. The Capitol is “becoming a pigsty,” he said, claiming the protesters were largely “college students having a fun party.”
Grothman appeared on MSNBC’s “The Last Word With Lawrence O’Donnell” Tuesday night opposite Democratic State Rep. Cory Mason to discuss the ongoing stand-off.
