Rep. Neugebauer Looking To Cash In On “Baby Killer” Shout
Even though he’s been apologizing for screaming “baby killer” during the health reform debate in Congress, Congressman Randy Neugebauer is now trying to use the incident to raise cash.
“I spoke very passionately because I believe what was going on was not right for America. … You know what, I’m never going to quit speaking on behalf of the unborn. … I will continue to speak with the same passion that I spoke with last night, maybe in a little different forum but with the same intensity.”
Neugebauer’s decision to try and raise money off the “baby killer” incident disappointed Democrats, some of whom have been calling for him to apologize on the floor of the House.
Neugebauer is using Google and Youtube to advertise his new-found sense of indignation. Congressman Bart Stupak, the supposed target of Neugebauer’s “baby killer” rant, doubts the the Texas congressman’s motives.
“I’m beginning to believe that’s how you raise money around here is insult somebody,” Stupak said.
“I’m surprised that Mr. Neugebauer would do that. You sort of wonder if his motive was to not only impugn my reputation but also to use it for fundraising. That’s pretty sad.”Click here for reuse options!
