Here's an IN lawmaker we need to defeat

Bring him down.
State Rep. Robert Morris, a Fort Wayne Republican, voted for Indiana's heinous right-to-work-for-less law. That alone is reason to kick him out of office. Indiana unions are working hard to do just that. Last weekend the AFL-CIO began a series of trainings on mobilizing a workers' army to take back the state.

But back to Morris: Apparently the same twisted thinking that prompted him to vote for a law that will worsen the lives of Indiana's working families also prompted him to declare the Girl Scouts are a radicalized organization that promotes homosexuality.

Yup. The Girl Scouts.

Morris refused to sign a resolution honoring the Girl Scouts of America on its centennial. According to We Party Patriots,
...in his words, the Girl scouts are a “radicalized organization” that supports abortion and promotes the “homosexual lifestyle”: 
Rep. Bob Morris, R-Fort Wayne, sent a letter to his fellow House Republicans on Saturday explaining why he would be the only member in the House not to endorse the nonbinding resolution. 
He said he did some web-based research and found allegations that the Girl Scouts are a tactical arm of Planned Parenthood, allows transgender females to join and encourages sex. 
Morris also said the fact that First Lady Michelle Obama is honorary president “should give each of us reason to pause before our individual and collective endorsement of the organization.”
When you think about it, though, it's not that big a leap from attacking workers to attacking Girl Scouts. Scary to think who his next target will be.
