Rep. Moore Opposes Jobs in Home State

How petty.

Rep. Gwen Moore (D-Wis.) said Wednesday that she “respectfully declined” an invitation from President Trump to appear with him at a news conference announcing the move of an electronics manufacturer to her state.

“My constituents have no interest in me entertaining the president’s desire to be used as a backdrop in this photo op,” Moore told the Associated Press.

I’ll bet that some of her constituents are interested in a massive job-creating development within commuting distance of her district.

Moore the Boor

It’s not surprising that the Wisconsin politician who is mostly known for saying stupid things is once again saying stupid things.

Ms. Moore said Mr. Walker was “literally campaigning around the state, saying you don’t want to be like Milwaukee, while at the same time really tightening the noose, literally, around African-Americans,” The Hill reported.

“He cut his teeth on ‘three strikes and you’re out’ mandatory minimum sentences — really, you know, trail ‘em, nail ‘em and jail ‘em politics … and so we really have a high incarceration rate,” she said.

Ms. Moore said the governor’s opposition to raising the minimum wage, requiring voters to show photo identification at the polls, and requiring drug testing for welfare recipients unfairly hurts black people. She also called Mr. Walker a “stereotypical politician” who will say anything to get elected, The Associated Press reported.
