Absurd Legislation

A Louisiana state lawmaker, Rickey Hardy (D-Lafayette), has introduced a constitutional amendment to bar people older than 70 from seeking and holding elective office.

That's one of the worst - and frankly, scariest - ideas I've heard come up through the legislative pipeline in some time.

It's so bad, in fact, that I'm going to post his email here for you to contact him and let him know, if you choose: hardyr@legis.state.la.us

Ideas like this need to be swatted down.
