Mitt Romney draws new Florida legislative endorsements
Former Massachusetts Gov. and current GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney announced he was adding to his list of endorsements by Florida lawmakers today. In all, Romney added 24 lawmakers today — two state senators and 22 House Republicans.
“They are champions for the taxpayer, fighting for the middle class that has been hit so hard by President Obama’s failed economic policies,” Romney said in a press release announcing the endorsements. “Their hard work in Tallahassee will help put many Floridians back to work. I’m excited to work with them to bring my message of reduced spending and fiscal restraint to Washington.”
Romney already had the support of 12 Florida legislators — six from each chamber — including the next three men scheduled to be speakers of the House. Here’s the list of the new endorsements released by Romney’s office:

Kathleen Passidomo: “11-year-old was raped because she dressed like a prostitute”
Florida – During a debate over dress codes in Florida schools, Republican State Rep. Kathleen Passidomo said one of the dumbest fucking things I’ve ever heard an elected official say. She actually said the 11-year-old Hispanic girl who was brutally raped by 18 black men, had it coming to her because she dressed like a prostitute. No really, she actually said this retarded shit. Here’s the quote.
“There was an article about an 11 year old girl who was gang raped in Texas by 18 young men because she was dressed like a 21-year-old prostitute,” Passidomo declared.
I like the reaction of Brandon Thorp from the Palm Beach News
“Whoa!” he wrote. “As a genus, politicians aren’t the brightest wicks in the candelabra, but they usually possess sufficient self-awareness to shield the public from the horror shows of their minds. Blaming the rape of an 11-year-old girl on her parents’ sense of fashion — and to do so out loud — smacks of rank amateurism.”
Interestingly enough, even about 50% the local residents in the small town where the incident happened, actually came out and laid the blame at the feet of the little girl.
Here’s my previous article I wrote on it: 18 charged in rape of a little 11-year-old girl
Let’s be clear, no where in this country can you have sex with an 11-year-old (who the fuck would want to?) and say stupid shit like, “she asked for it” or “she told me she was older” and get away with it.
Come on, it’s a small town, these boys/men know how old she was. Hell one of their retarded lawyers went on national radio and said they were all aware of her being 11-years-old.
One final note, Kathleen Passidomo, if you think a little 11-year-old deserved this, then you are a retarded bitch. Have a nice day!
