All Is Forgiven, "Dr. Chaps"

In the aftermath of the horrific attack on a pregnant Longmont woman last month, Rep. Gordon “Dr. Chaps” Klingenschmitt said the crime was “the curse of God upon America” for allowing abortions. Klingenschmitt, no stranger to controversy as a frequent utterer of over-the-top claims about demon-possessed liberals and so forth, was hit with some of the harshest criticism yet–and was removed from his post on the House Health, Insurance and Environment Committee by his fellow Republicans. As Minority Leader Brian DelGrosso said on March 31st:

“I was very disturbed by Representative Klingenschmitt’s comments last week and want to reiterate that his comments do not represent our caucus and he does not speak for our caucus. As House Minority Leader my ability to discipline a member of our caucus is limited. Representative Klingenschmitt’s conduct warranted his removal from the committee,” House Minority Leader Brian DelGrosso (R-Loveland) said in a statement.

Question: just how disturbing were these comments to Minority Leader DelGrosso, really?

Answer: about three weeks’ worth. The Colorado Springs Gazette’s Megan Schrader Tweets today:

Because every legislator is required to serve on at least one committee, Rep. Klingenschmitt was only removed from the Health, Insurance, and Environment Committee, and retained his post on the Local Government Committee. But the outcry over Klingenschmitt’s comments about the attack on Michelle Wilkins in Longmont was quite broad, and his removal from the HIE committee by Minority Leader DelGrosso was in response to an avalanche of phone calls and emails from the public.

We have to wonder how the public will take the news of his reinstatement only three weeks later–assuming they hear about it at all.

  1. …so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and of those who are in leadership.

    Philippians 2:10

  2. And just what infinitesimal portion of the public was ever aware of any of this? My guess is that it can’t be expressed in a percentage not preceded by zeros after the decimal point.

      1. More is relative. Pretty sure this means nothing to the overwhelming majority of voters. Most couldn’t name their state rep. or sen. to save their lives. Sorry. I’ve been out canvassing too many times. Double next to nothing is still next to nothing.

  3. Excellent! I not only agree with restoration of the Chaps to his place on the health committee, I would go one step further and have him replace delGrosso as Republican minority leader. Anything to get a microphone in front of this fool.

    1. Day of Silence
      Excuse to perpetrate violence
      Against our Lord and Savior
      Promoting behavior
      That goes against nature
      
      Man to woman and woman to man
      That's the plan, not Stan and Dan
      Bumpin' sacks
      Doin' the beast with two backs
      Leviticus under attack
