Meet State Representative Dave Agema who represents some townships in Ottawa County, Michigan. He's a Republican.
He hates Gay people.
Agema has a new plan for sticking it to the gays and universities. A House panel on Tuesday moved out his bills prohibiting any public entity...from offering domestic partner benefits*
He has proposed bills that would cut state funding by 5% for any university offering benefits for same sex partnerships.
He hates, hates, hates muslims
Rep. Dave Agema (R-Grandville) has taken a break from his obsession with sticking it to gays and is now going after Muslims, but says the folks who disagree with him are the real bigots. He's introduced a bill effectively banning Sharia law in Michigan, which solves a completely made-up problem, as it's not in place anywhere in the state (not even Dearborn).
He put forward plans to divert 80% the Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund.
He successfully agitated to get 30,000 students kicked off of Michigan's food assistance.
And he's mad as all heck that Bill Huizenga voted to pass the budget extension.
Now he's got a wart on his fanny giving him the fidgets. Bill Huizenga's seat doesn't look like a bad place to be sitting, apparently. 2012 is going to be a LOT more fun than I imagined.
