Glenn Grothman: once again making Wisconsin look backwards in the national spotlight.

He's been here before. Maybe he missed the spot light.

Wisconsin GOP Leader Proposes Legislation To Blame Single Parents For Child Abuse And Neglect - Forbes
Wisconsin State Senator Glenn Grothman, the Assistant Majority Leader and a close ally of GOP Governor Scott Walker in the effort to destroy collective bargaining in the Badger State, is taking crazy to new levels.

Grothman has introduced a bill that would require the State of Wisconsin to officially deem single parenthood to be a “contributor” to child abuse and neglect and to put the same into statutory laws of the state.

Seriously…no kidding…really.


To be fair, data reveals that there are more incidents of child abuse in households with only one parent than in households with two parents. But the data does not indicate that this factor is somehow more responsible for child abuse than the other factors listed above so, again, why single this factor out to include in the state’s statutes and not the others?

Welcome to what's become of Wisconsin.
