Democratic Rep. Barb Byrum points out the GOPocrisy of Michigan Republicans



Michigan Democrat Rep. Barb Byrum who was banned from speaking last month by House Speaker Jase Bolger, called a “child” and described as having thrown a “temper tantrum” and disrupting the decorum of the House of Representatives, posted a great little piece on her Facebook page recently.

The Republicans say I embarrassed myself because I am a women who dared to speak out.

I did not impregnate a member of my staff.

I was not arrested.

I did not file a false police report.

I did not conspire to commit election fraud.

All of these things have been done by current Republican legislators.

Incredibly, they think I’m the one who should be embarrassed.


My good friend Zack Stanton made it into a graphic that’s been going somewhat viral on Michigan Facebook pages:

Also perfect.
