Assemblyman Under Fire For Saying He’ll Bring Back Slavery – A Northern Nevada Republican Assemblyman is getting some serious heat for some comments that were caught on video. He was recorded saying that he would “hold his nose” and vote for slavery if that’s what his constituents wanted. He is being condemned by republicans and democrats alike for the comments but defends himself by saying that he was trying to make the point that he represents his district- he was not trying to condone slavery. He issued an official statement saying “The media is having a good time with a clearly facetious statement I made in a town hall meeting earlier this year. They’re attempting to spin an extreme example I used about supporting my constituents to accuse me of being racist. Anybody that knows me knows that’s absurd, and anyone that views the comments in context understands that the whole point of the example is that racism of any kind is something that I find completely unacceptable.”
