Ten Montana Senators Vote to Keep Prison Time for Gay People

by Cowgirl

On Tuesday, the Montana Senate voted, finally, to erase our “anti-sodomy law” which makes it an imprisonable crime to be gay.  Although invalidated by our state supreme court in 1997, the law has remained on our books because Republicans have always refused to go along with efforts to scrap it.

But yesterday, SB 107, a measure to strike the offensive language from our statutes finally passed the senate.  That said, the vote was far from unanimous.  Ten Republicans voted no.  They are:

Nutwatch is keeping an eye on Dave Lewis.

Sen. Dave Lewis, R-Helena (sponsor of bill to withdraw U.S. from the UN)

Scott Sales R-Bozeman

Sen. Scott Sales R-Bozeman

Yep, this is the Obama bullet ridden outhouse guy.

Sen. Scott Boulanger R-Darby (with infamous bullet-ridden Obama outhouse.)

Sen. Dee Brown R-Hungry Horse

Sen. Dee Brown R-Hungry Horse (Pictured rallying to ‘save’ a plastic statue of Jesus.)

Verdell Jackson is from Kalispell

Sen. Verdell Jackson R-Kalispell (Says keeping this law on the books “protects him from getting propositioned on the street.”

 

 

Yikes

Sen. Rick Ripley R-Wolf Creek

Senator John Brenden's got federal cash, poor people should F*** off.

Sen. John Brenden R-Scobey (yep, he’s the legislature’s largest recipient of federal farm subsidies, but opposes Medicaid expansion for poor.)

 

Matthew Rosendale wants gay people imprisoned.

Sen. Matthew Rosendale R-Glendive

Bigotry doesn't become him.

Sen. Fred Thomas R-Stevensville, Bitterrooter

He's the dog killer.

Sen. Roger Webb, R-Billings (This guy was convicted of beating and shooting his neighbors’s pets Katie and Alli, both black labs.)

    Dear Sen. Brown: HELLO! It’s 2013. Get with the 21st century – It’s only been going on for 13 years! Wake up.

    Reality has finally cracked the shells off these nuts, and we see them for who they are…. Despicable jerks. Thank goodness these laws are finally gone!

    1. montanafesto

      The law isn’t gone yet. It still has to officially pass the Senate and will be likely heading to the House Judiciary committee where it died in the last session. I hope this committee is more reasonable.

      guess the west coast isn’t the home of fruit & nuts…oh, forget the fruits. that’s still illegal in montana.

  3. The Lone Star Stopgap

    This is America’s Taliban. No way around it. Putting people in prison based on your distorted and hateful religious beliefs.

    Now that’s funny! But not to worry, they have replaced many of their limp employees who failed to win the the white house, and they have also replaced the head of their young voters group, “generation opportunity”……….. generation what???

    bwhahahahahahahahahahahahahahhaaaa!

      And on a personal note to my pals, the Big Kockh brothers.

      WELCOME TO MONTANA, HOSERS! LET’S GET BIRCHY!

      Wasn’t your daddy one of the first john birchers? Why yes he was! He would be just SO proud of you little pissants and all your little suckophants here in Montana like little marky purina, reetard teetard extraordinaire! Where DO you find these inbreds?

      Senator Lewis,

      What is your explanation for voting to keep an unconstitutional law on the books? Do you have no respect for the constitution or do you just dislike gay people?

    2. draftmama

      Senator Lewis – you are a disgrace to the people of Montana. Those same people who have been paying your salary and benefits for lo these many years. Find a rock and crawl under it please.

  5. Kim

    Would you deny a place in your Canyon campground to a gay person? And who cares who is gay or straight? And why does it matter? Less government, right, Repubs? Clean up the paperwork on overloaded, outdated laws.

  6. Norma Duffy @ilikewoods

    Baggers dont know the difference of right and wrong… This is why Mark Sanford, can make a run for senate, even after his extra martial affair… just as Newt Gingrich had a chance to run for president.

    They like being led by the nose into desolation by Snakeoil salesman with an elephant pin on there Lapel, and a teabag hanging from their hat.

      Here’s the details.

      http://www.dailykos.com/story/2013/02/20/1188541/-MT-Sen-Is-Brian-Schweitzer-D-Having-A-Change-Of-Heart-About-The-2014-Senate-Race

      See, here’s the problem as I see it for Sen. Mini Barfus. Schweitzer is charismatic, and Barfus is spasmatic! (ever seen the dude try to speak?)

      And when charismatic goes head to head with spasmatic, who do you THINK is gonna win?!

      If Brian decides to run, Mini better leave the field of battle before the fight with his ass intact, for if not, Schweitzer will surely KICK it! Scwheitzer nearly did the impossible in his first time around. He damn near unhorsed the feedlot cowboy and bankrupt auctioneer, sen. cornhole burns! This was an unprecedented feat. How does Mini think he would have a chance against the most popular governor we’ve ever had, esPECIALLY since most Dems and progressives can’t STAND his sorry, corporate ass?!

      Nope. It’s over for Mini. The writin’s on the outhouse wall. Need a good sheepherder? Well then, call Mini Barfus at 1-800-I’m screwed!

      bwhahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahaha!

      Mini will look good in a sheepherder’s wagon! Maybe instead of running across the state for the next election, he can take his wagon!!

      bwhahahahahahahahahaahhahahahahahaa!

      Yes, I’m luvin’ this! Wonder who the ReePubes would run? Creepy Cretin Kearns?? bhwhahahaahahahhahaa!

    I am not a person prone to thinking that every homophobe is really a closeted homosexual. Usually I think that claim is pretty ridiculous. But having known Fred Thomas growing up, in his (closet) case it wouldn’t surprise me one bit. Not.One.Bit.

  8. Rob Kailey

    One more *rather important* thing for the record: Scott Sales does not represent Bozeman. His district is the Three Forks area of Gallatin County crossing to Broadwater county up to Toston. Bozeman doesn’t claim him. Bozeman doesn’t want him.

  9. MTNativeEyes

    How truly dysfunctional. These people think they are normal. The scariest thing is PEOPLE ACTUALLY ELECTED THEM! Are we just plain, straight-up doomed?
