One of the BEST & BRIGHTEST AND MOST KICK-ASS TKC Readers found this recent tribute to a local Congress lady that offers a rare local reference.
Pretty sure she's referencing comments from one of you d-bags in this passage . . .
One young Black girl, her voice slightly shaking, quietly asked Davids, a former mixed martial artist, community college and law school graduate, lesbian, Ho-Chunk Nation member, and the only Democrat in the Kansas congressional delegation, if she faced discrimination in Washington.
Davids sipped from her water bottle, sipped again, and then jokingly went to take another sip, feigning avoidance of the question. There had been a local publication during her campaign that often targeted her with racist taunts, she told them. “I asked my staff to stop including their clips in my daily media binder,” she said.
In Congress, she went on, things had been better, but not always. “Guys will grab me in one way or another. That stuff still happens. People say things that are unintentional and also overt,” she said. “I have a go-to phrase: ‘That’s an interesting thing for you to say to me!’”
That quick set of allegations reads weirdly and I'm not sure if I understand it correctly . . . Did the Congresswoman claim that men are still goosing her??? No joke, if that's happening it's totally unacceptable and also means a lot of TKC readers should move to the Beltway.

The new women of Congress, many of them firsts from their racial or ethnic group to serve in their district-or, as in Rep. Sharice Davids's case, the nation-undertook their roles beyond lawmaking.(The following is an excerpt from Chapter 8 of 'The Firsts: The Inside Story of the Women Reshaping Congress,' by New York Times reporter Jennifer Steinhauer.)
