Bad for Don East
As the Mount Airy News reports, East is unrepentant about helping to torpedo compensation for eugenics victims.
“It doesn’t change anything — if they’re sterile, they’re still sterile,” said the Republican who represents Surry, Stokes, Yadkin and Alleghany counties in the Legislature.
Maybe next year, East will propose a bill to abolish punishment for murder. After all, as the Senator would be able to argue, “It doesn’t change anything – if the victims are dead, they’re still dead.”
