Senator Glenn Grothman was on The Last Word yesterday with Lawrence O’Donnell. He told the host that the protesters living in the Wisconsin capitol building were smelly slobs.

Senator Glenn Grothman speaks truth to power:

“We’re trying to keep people out of the Capital because the building is becoming a pig sty. People are staying over night, the building smells. We used to have nice tours for children, all that’s being shut down by a bunch of slobs taking up the building. We can no longer continue to have all these slobs in the building. It would be embarrassing to me to take my child through that building today. These people are not nurses, police, and firefighters, they are college students and hangers-on who are having a fun party. The people who are staying over night are largely making a mess of our Capital. Why are we keeping people out? Because we do not want to have so many people there overnight defacing our beautiful Capital. A very small percentage are police, and firefighters, and nurses. I think if you would interview all the people who are making a ruckus, the vast majority are either college T.A.s, college students, and hanger’s-on… Or unemployed people just looking for someplace to hang out.

Don’t hold back, senator.
