We’d love to hear your thoughts on the project — more videos will be posted soon — and we’d also appreciate your suggestions as to which questions we ought to tackle next!
It’s not enough for private Christian schools to teach Creationism in the classroom; many states are now supporting voucher programs that use taxpayer funds to help students attend these schools. We’ve posted about the problem before, and now Politico has issued a “special report” on the issue:
GOP Gubernatorial Candidate in California Has an Extensive Rap Sheet, But It’s OK ‘Cause He Found God
If you’re in California and you’d like your next governor to be a sex offender and a convicted felon with a history of violence, look no further than Glenn Champ, one of the current crop of six gubernatorial GOP candidates.
Glenn Champ, 48, addressed hundreds of GOP delegates and supporters Sunday at the site of the state party’s semi-annual convention. Introduced by party chairman Jim Brulte and allotted 10 minutes, Champ spoke in between the main GOP candidates, former U.S. Treasury official Neel Kashkari and state Assemblyman Tim Donnelly of San Bernardino County.
Champ, a little-known political neophyte from the Fresno County community of Tollhouse, did not directly mention his criminal past during his speech but said, “In my life, I’ve been held accountable because of my stupidity. I do not want anyone else to be enslaved because of their lack of knowledge.”
There’s a record of Champ’s “stupidity.” It’s called a rap sheet.
