Florida Lawmaker Wants To Overturn Ban On Dwarf Tossing

Posted by | October 6, 2011 13:39 | Filed under: Top Stories

Florida State Rep. Ritch Workman doesn’t like that you can’t toss dwarfs in his state.

“To me it’s an archaic kind of Big Brother law that says, ‘We don’t like that activity,'” Workman told the Florida Current. “Well, there is nothing immoral or illegal about that activity. All we really did by passing that law was take away some employment from some little people.”

Workman has introduced legislation to get rid of the ban.

House Bill 4063 would repeal Florida Statute 561.665, which bans establishments who sell alcohol from activities “involving exploitation endangering the health, safety, and welfare of any person with dwarfism.”
