What was I saying about Arizona, Sheriff Joe Arpaio, and SB1062 the other night?
Excerpts of state Rep. John Kavanagh’s (R) jokes posted online Wednesday by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) show that the lawmaker, who supported Arizona’s vetoed SB 1062 legislation, mocked concerns that the bill could have led to discrimination on the basis of religious liberty.
“I scoffed at that, until tonight,” Kavanaugh can be heard saying. “When a Muslim waiter serving up here, walked up to Sheriff Joe, wouldn’t give him his dinner because he said, ‘I don’t serve swine.’”
Get it? Muslims and pork and Sheriff Joe is a pig. We can at least agree on the latter.
