Rep. Janna Taylor (R-Flathead, Lake County) testified against abolishing the death penalty this week.
Senate Bill 185, sponsored by Democratic state Sen. David Wanzenried of Missoula, drew emotional testimony during the hearing by the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Then Rep. Taylor stepped to the mic. She has a strange reason for supporting the death penalty. I’m not sure emotional was the first word that came to mind when I watched this Youtube video of Rep. Janna Taylor’s testimony.
You be the judge.
Rep. Taylor posts a “column” every week with her take on the session. For a very unique look at the legislative process and the minds making Montana law, you won’t want to miss it.
UPDATE: For a great explanation of just how ignorant these comments really are, and why, read this excellent post over at one of my favorite blogs, From Eternity to Here.
