‘I’d vote for slavery’ says Nevada lawmaker

Jim WheelerAccording to the Las Vegas Sun, state Sen. Jim Wheeler, a Republican from Gardnerville, told a crowd “yeah I would” vote for slavery if that’s what his constituents wanted.

Wheeler said today that he believes “liberal” operatives are trying to frame him as a bigot by spreading video of the statement on the Internet. “That’s what a republic is about. You elected a person for your district to do your wants and wishes, not the wants and wishes of a special interest, not his own wants and wishes, yours.”

Wheeler now says he would not actually vote for anything that would legalize human slavery. Rather, he claimed, he was exaggerating in order to make a point that representing the will of his constituents is important to him.

    Calm down people! Don’t run your blood pressure up. If indeed he did vote for slavery to be re-established in America; he’d no doubt be the first victim of it. Just look at him. He has all the facial features of a black man. He just doesn’t have the skin color to go with it. No doubt he probably sounds black when he talks too!
