Prosecutors believe Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a potential 2016 Republican candidate for president, was at the center of a nationwide "criminal scheme" to illegally coordinate fundraising with outside conservative groups, according to previously secret court documents released Thursday.
"Don't hold this against me, but I'm going to blurt it out," Schweitzer is quoted as saying. "How do I say this ... men in the South, they are a little effeminate. They just have effeminate mannerisms. If you were just a regular person, you turned on the TV, and you saw Eric Cantor talking, I would say — and I'm fine with gay people, that's all right — but my gaydar is 60-70 percent. But he's not, I think, so I don't know. Again, I couldn't care less. I'm accepting."
So in one spectacular quote, Schweitzer burns an entire class of voters who are already antagonistic toward Democrats and he also says some disturbing, condescending things about a traditional Democratic voting bloc. I guess that's one way to bring the parties together. Now southern men and gay people can both agree that Brian Schweitzer is an asshole.
