Cliff Stearns
Rep. Cliff Stearns (R-Loser)
This is some fantastic news.

Republican Rep. Cliff Stearns (FL-03) just lost to Ted Yoho in a primary Stearns apparently didn't feel he needed to bother trying to, you know, win.  

You remember Stearns, don't you? He's the House Republican who believes in taxpayer-funded contraception for horses but not women.

He's also the rotten son of a bitch who launched an "investigation" into Planned Parenthood, "requesting reams of financial information and details on how the women's health organization keeps federal funds separate from abortion services," because Republicans hate women's health care sooooo much that they convinced themselves Planned Parenthood, the largest provider of women's health care, must be up to no good. Stearns had no actual evidence of wrongdoing, and thus far, he hasn't found any. Because there is nothing to find.

It was that bogus investigation that Susan G. Komen for the Cure cited to justify terminating funding of Planned Parenthood's breast cancer screening program. Because Planned Parenthood was under "investigation," according to the anti-choicers at Komen, it no longer deserved funding. That didn't work out well for Komen.

While Stearns has been busy waging his holy war against Planned Parenthood, instead of representing his constituents, he managed to let "large animal veterinarian" Ted Yoho sneak up and kick him out of a job. And come January, Mr. "Job Creation Solutions" will be looking for a new job himself.
