Representative Virginia Foxx that is, from the the land of republican stupidity that is known as North Carolina.

Rep. Foxx has been named chair of the House Subcommittee on Higher Education. Have we already forgotten Don McElroy?

I do not know if she is a creationist but she is certainly so far to the right on the issues I would not be surprised.

Here are some of her greatest hits (or misses):
  • One of 11 members out of the entire Congress to vote in 2005 against the $51 billion aid package to victims of Hurricane Katrina
  • In 2006 she awas one of only 33 Republicans to vote against the extension of the Voting Rights Act. 
  • In 2010, she voted against the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act, the Reduction of Lead in Drinking Water Act, the Aiding Those Facing Foreclosure Act of 2010, and against the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act.
There is a petition to get her replaced on the committee. You can find it here.

BTW - Does anyone else think picture reminds you of a grandmotherly serial killer?
