Ed Martin, the perfect illustration of how the St. Louis Tea Party is nothing more than an arm of the Missouri Republican Party, put out the following obnoxious tweet today:
Call me old-fashioned, but shouldn't a candidate for office have enough decency to not use people losing their jobs to make a far fetched political attack? Shouldn't a candidate for the U.S. House know better than to make a sarcastic joke at the expense of people whose lives have just been turned upside down?
Just goes to show, as the Post-Dispatch has already illustrated, that Martin is willing to slime anyone and anything to achieve his political objectives.
Update: A couple parents of children in the Lindbergh School district react to Martin's comment over Twitter:
Cops and ex-cops step up to condemn the war on drugs
