Remember Wisconsin Senator Glenn Grothman? This is the same Grothman who angered one of our readers here, and will anger you here at TPC as you continue to read:

Now this piece of excrement has written a controversial bill aimed at single parents. He thinks that kids who are raised by "a" mom or dad will most likely be auto-abused.

RH Reality Check, specifically Michael Hayne, nails it:

Indiana Senator Glenn Grothman (R-West Bend), a Republican in Wisconsin’s state senate, thinks that children from single parents are probably victims of child abuse. In his world, a deadbeat dad (Joe Walsh, anyone?) is an American hero whereas the single mom is a disordered, unstable Harlot and should probably be raped by a state doctor. [...]

A portion of the bill reads as follows:

“In promoting those campaigns and materials, the [Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Board] shall emphasize nonmarital parenthood as a contributing factor to child abuse and neglectHe thinks that kids who are raised by "a" mom or dad will most likely be auto-abused..”

Where to start? First, does GrossGrothman realize how many single parents there are in Wisconsin? Hayne's post reveals that it's a whopping  32 percent

What if one parent dies, Glenny? Does that automatically turn the survivor into a child abuser?

And exactly how do single parents make the sudden conversion to neglectful sloths who stop caring and start endangering their kids?

Forget it. The white hot stupid is not worth any more of my time.
