Wisconsin Bill Claims Single Moms Cause Child Abuse by Not Being Married

More hatred and bigotry directed at single moms (but not single dads, cause they are such heroes, don't you know?) by old white GOP men. I swear, despising single moms must be a requirement for getting into the Republican Party. The good news is that the bigoted yahoo sponsor of this bill -- Republican Senator Glenn Grothman -- is up for recall:

In Wisconsin, a state senator has introduced a bill aimed at penalizing single mothers by calling their unmarried status a contributing factor in child abuse and neglect...

Saying that people "make fun of old-fashioned families," Grothman -- who has never been married and has no children -- criticized social workers for not agreeing that children should only be raised by two married biological parents, and told a state Senate committee that he hopes the Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention board, of which he's a member, could "publicize something that's politically incorrect but has to be said in our society."
