Democrat chastised for saying ‘uterus’ on House floor | Florida politics blog: The Buzz | tampabay.com & St. Petersburg Times

During last week’s discussion about a bill that would prohibit governments from deducting union dues from a worker’s paycheck, state Rep. Scott Randolph, D-Orlando, used his time during floor debate to argue that Republicans are against regulations — except when it comes to the little guys, or serves their specific interests.

At one point Randolph suggested that his wife “incorporate her uterus” to stop Republicans from pushing measures that would restrict abortions. Republicans, after all, wouldn’t want to further regulate a Florida business.

Apparently the GOP leadership of the House didn’t like the one-liner.

They actually said that there were children in the gallery who could hear such offensive words, “particularly the young pages and messengers who are seated in the chamber during debates.” Who knew using the word ‘uterus’ would cause such consternation?

What is Florida – living in the 50s when the word ‘pregnant’ could not be used on TV? I bet during the abortion discussions over the years, words more disruptive than uterus were used. But then, perhaps some of them were distracted.

I wonder what would happen if he discussed the latest work on penis spines? Probably impeach him.
