The Family Values File
Referring to forced sexual slavery in the capitalist paradise established outside on US soil but outside of US law by the Republican Congress:
Rep. Ralph Hall (R-TX) took the floor of Congress in 1996 to question a 15 year-old girl's claim that she had been the victim of sex trafficking in the Northern Mariana Islands, a client of Jack Abramoff.
"[S]he wanted to do nude dancing," Hall said.
A lobbyist working with Abramoff helped Hall prepare his statement, and Abramoff had earlier paid for a trip by Hall to the islands.
By comparison, scum serves a valuable purpose. Ralph Hall just takes up space.
