Disgraced ex-lawmaker Luke Simons posts meme suggesting Uvalde shooting was a political stunt
MINOT, N.D. — There was a tragedy in Uvalde, Texas, this week. Another mass shooting, this was resulting in 21 deaths. Most of them were elementary school children.
Now Americans — from politicians to Hollywood celebrities to sports figures to just people with a Facebook following — are saying the same tired things they always say when this happens.
In that latter group is disgraced former state lawmaker Luke Simons who became the first legislator in state history to be expelled from the assembly after multiple accounts of harassment from legislative staff and colleagues became public.
Simons, a cookie-cutter example of the sort of shameless cretin that has found a degree of political fame in the Trump era, is proud of that expulsion. The profile picture for his Facebook page touts that he was “expelled and censored.”
