Remember Karen Handel, the batty anti-choicer who was forced to resign her executive position with the Susan G. Komen Foundation after the group defunded Planned Parenthood and got a massive public reaction? She’s now thinking about running for the Senate in Georgia.
Karen Handel, the former Susan G. Komen for the Cure executive who drove the charity’s attempt to defund Planned Parenthood, is considering running for U.S. Senate in Georgia, according to one of her former aides.
“She’s considering it,” Rob Simms, a Republican campaign consultant who worked on Handel’s unsuccessful run for governor in 2010, told the Weekly Standard.
If she ran, she would be going up against Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.), whom Roll Call reported may be vulnerable to a primary challenge from the right, given his “willingness to reach across the aisle and his comfort with the idea of compromise.”
Sounds like a great idea to me. Please do this.
