  •  You are Correct, Kansas is NOT Maryland (0+ / 0-)

    The GOP in Kansas has been taken over by the Wing nuts.  I live in Johnson County, KS, Olathe no less.  The state senator for my area is Kay O'Connor, who believes woman should not have the vote. Yes, Seriously and she is a woman.

    In 2001, O'Connor of Olathe was quoted in The Star as saying she did not support the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, which gave women the right to vote. She added that she would vote against it were it to be considered today.

    At the time, and again Wednesday, O'Connor was critical of the story and denied making the remarks, although two women from the Johnson County League of Women Voters who overheard the remarks vouched for the story's accuracy.

    Many in  the KS GOP are leaving that party because of the Republicans who are so far right they fall off the side of the earth.
