Resolution honoring Girl scout's 100th anniversary thwarted by Alaska GOP


By wcolin - Posted on 10 April 2012

The GOP's war on women (which they deny exists) has now evolved into a war on girls in the Alaska legislature. Wes Keller, R-Wasilla (that's right, Wasilla) refused to let a resolution honoring Girl Scouts of America's 100th anniversary of out committee because of internet rumors that G.S.A. is somehow associated with Planned Parenthood. Keller admitted he had no way of verifying the rumors, but refused anyway to allow the resolution to reach the floor for a vote.

Far right-wing religious types already don't like Girl Scouts because (gasp!) the organization discusses all birth control forms rather than just abstinence.
