Debbie Lesko doesn't even need to work at it; she's spent most of her adult life living in the shadows of questionable activity. Before she was a U.S. Congresswoman, Ms. Lesko was an Arizona State Representative--the State-Level equivalent to U.S. Congressperson. Before then, she developed an infamous reputation build on shady conduct, ALL of which she conveniently blames on an ex-husband. But, that she voted against both the Child Care is Essential Act and the Child Care for Economic Recovery Act (07/29/2020, <CLICK HERE>) reveals her stupidity, but also that she has more balls than Gosar. Sadly, you can't fix stupid.
Back in 2012, when the economy was still in need of "jobs, jobs, and jobs," this article was published:
Debbie Lesko's Freedom-Hating Anti-Birth-Control Bill
STEPHEN LEMONS | MARCH 16, 2012 | 3:46PM
Republican state Representative Debbie Lesko's anti-contraception bill, House Bill 2025, which would further an employer's access to your private medical files and let that same employer discriminate against you if you seek to obtain "insurance coverage or prescriptions for contraceptives from another source."...Lesko's bill broadens the language considerably, and gives employers more power to pry into the sex lives and medical records of their employees.
In speaking on behalf of her bill, Lesko made the inevitable, knee-jerk GOP comparison to communism.
"We don't live in the Soviet Union," she said. "And so government shouldn't be telling employers, Catholic organizations or mom and pop employers to do something that's against their moral beliefs."
Sorry, Debbie, but you're the one goin' all Stalin on us. In a communist country, you have no privacy, no right to talk to your doctor without looking over your shoulder. Here, in the good ol' U.S. of A., there are privacy laws restricting access to your personal medical information. "
In the years since that article was published, Congresswoman Lesko hasn't gotten any smarter, once again proving "stupid people can get elected to Congress. Sadly, its clear that Ms. Lesko doesn't take advantage of college-level online classes.
