Then Tries to Lie to Media about What He Said
They’ve done it again. Rep. Dave Hagstrom, of Billings was featured on MSNBC as the latest Montana legislator to become a national laughingstock.
In a segment called “The Sideshow, this week in GOP Jaw Droppers,” Chris Matthews shines a light the most ridiculous things actually said by Republicans across the nation. Here’s the video:
Joining Rep. Hagstrom in embarrassing their respective states are a Texas Republican who says the Noah’s ark flood proves that global warming is a hoax (because we know it wasn’t caused by oil refineries). Also featured was a gun advocate who called his own legislation “as good as a three-dollar bill.”
Embarrassingly, Rep. Hagstrom is now trying to claim that he never said what he’s caught on video saying:
“I haven’t seen the tape [of my remarks], but it should show I said sex is for procreation and sex is for pleasure,” Montana state Rep. Dave Hagstrom (R) said. “That’s what I said. I don’t know if that’s what the video says I said… Of course sex has two purposes.”
In reality, the entirety of every house floor session is posted online. It shows Rep. Hagstrom exactly what Hagstrom said–and didn’t say. Perhaps if he had known this he wouldn’t have tried to claim otherwise. Anyone who wishes to verify can do so by watching the entire discussion of the bill on the links below. KXLH’s clip of Rep. Hagstrom’s remarks is online here.
