I don’t think that I am the only one to think that this is a good thing. Sometimes in life, you get to read a good headline. Outspoken? I think clueless is more inline with this typical conservative.
Kay O’Connor, an outspoken Republican conservative who once said women’s suffrage was a sign that society didn’t value families enough, is leaving the Kansas Legislature.
O’Connor announced Wednesday that she would resign her Senate seat, probably by the end of October. She acknowledged that her unsuccessful campaign this year for the GOP nomination for secretary of state was a key factor in her decision.
In a letter to supporters, she wrote, “My friends, I am tired.”
She briefly became a national figure in 2001, when she described the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which granted women the right to vote, “a symptom of something I don’t approve of.” She said women wouldn’t need the right if men took care of them adequately.
“The 19th Amendment is around because men weren’t doing their jobs, and I think that’s sad,” she said then. “I believe the man should be the head of the family. The woman should be the heart of the family.”
After all, she is the republican poster child:
She received only 27 percent of the vote in the secretary of state race, and received two ethics fines, both times for illegally soliciting campaign contributions from lobbyists.
Take your daily dose of “I told you so” Kay! I don’t expect to shed any tears over you. I don’t think many others will at the same time. As the title says, don’t let the door hit you on the way out. You will not be the last!
