Carnahan Chooses Puppies: Martin Chooses Profits (VIDEO)

Congressman Russ Carnahan and Ed Martin were asked about Proposition B, the ballot initiative to ban puppy mill cruelty, at both of the debates this past weekend.

Ed Martin came out against passing a law to make sure that the dogs are treated more humanely, claiming that Big Scary Outside Interests Will Control Your Life if you vote yes:

Just a reminder, here is what dogs will be provided with if the bill passes:
Sufficient food and clean water;
Necessary veterinary care;
Sufficient housing, including protection from the elements;
Sufficient space to turn and stretch freely, lie down, and fully extend his or her limbs;
Regular exercise; and
Adequate rest between breeding cycles

Carnahan, on the other hand, gave a rather confusing answer at the first debate, where he appeared to agree with Ed Martin (however, it should be noted, he never said that he opposed Prop B, and he did clearly state he was against puppy mills). Thankfully, he clarified at the second debate that he is definitely in favor of Proposition B and opposed to puppy mills.


  1. Ed Martin is one of the most despicable of a particulary despicable crop of Republicans. His willingness to subject puppies to puppy mill cruelties is just one more proof.

  2. When you see that Joe The Plumber has come out against this bill, you have to wonder who is paying for the pushback against Proposition B.

    There's money behind this.
