Bad for Don East

[1]State Senator Don East is mounting a strong last minute rush in his campaign to be named Top Heartless Blowhard of the 2012 Legislative Session.

As the Mount Airy News reports [2], 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.”
