BOUQUETS & BRICKBATS

Brickbats to U.S. Rep. Ted Yoho

Posted

Brickbats to U.S. Rep. Ted Yoho for saying he'd support “birther” legislation requiring another look at President Barack Obama’s birth certificate. He joins a list of loonies who claim Obama wasn't born in this country and is not a U.S. citizen. “They said if it is true, it’s illegal, he shouldn’t be there, and we can get rid of everything he’s done, and I said I agree with that,” he said at an Aug. 3 town meeting in Gainesville. He also claimed a tax on tanning beds included in the Affordable Care Act was racist against white people. The freshman Republican represents several whole counties and parts of others in North Florida, including Clay County.
