Kansas Senate Leader Bans Women from Wearing “Low-Cut Necklines and Mini-Skirts” at Hearings

Because there are no other problems in Kansas, State Senator Mitch Holmes has decided to tackle the real issue affecting people in the state.

He wants women who testify in front of the Senate Ethics and Elections Committee (which he chairs) to cover themselves up. He issued an 11-point code of conduct and Item 2 on that list focused on what people could wear.

Marco Rubio is Now Using His Conversation with an Atheist to Raise Money for His Campaign

A few days ago, reader Justin Scott, an Iowan who has been spending a lot of time asking Presidential candidates what they’d do to protect the rights of atheists and separation of church and state, asked Sen.
