Damn, That’s Some Good Geitol
Recently, Kansas state senators approved a bill that prohibits anybody under age 15 from getting married. This all started because some damned 22-year-old from Falls City, Nebraska, got a 14-year-old girl pregnant. (They started dating when she was 13 and he was 21. So you know, it’s not creepy or nothin’… [sarcasm].) Anycrap, like white trash girls everywhere she done turned up pregnant. The girl’s mom (aka pimp-tress, in my opinion) said the two could get married, but you have to be at least 17 to get married in Nebraska. Kansas doesn’t have a minimum age if there is parental approval, so the Falls City Hillbillies loaded up the truck and they went to Hiawatha. Kansas, that is. Swimmin’ pools…Casey’s Stores. (Sorry, I was on a roll.)
Since Kansas has been suffering from enough bad PR to last a decade, our Governess Governor said “there ought to be a law” and *poof* now the legislation has passed the Senate by a vote of 36 to 4.
But who praytell was among the 4 who voted against the bill? Our own Crazy Kay O’Connor (R-Olathe)! Here’s her loopy justification, and I’m rewriting it verbatim from the Topeka newspaper because it’s just so danged nutty: “Sen. Kay O’Connor said the bill could create hardships for a girl under age 15 who becomes pregnant because she couldn’t marry. ‘This bill has potential to do harm and a strong potential to increase the number of abortions,” said O’Connor, R-Olathe.'” …
So don’t fret, Dear Kansas Child Rapists Who Want to Marry Their Victims. Crazy Kay is defending your honor. And she’d appreciate your vote on election day.
