Legislator offends with email forward

FARGO – An email its sender in the North Dakota House calls “just a little humor” is finding a tough reception among a broader audience.

That’s after Bismarck Rep. Larry Klemin forwarded the email, titled “Why Men are Seldom Depressed,” to all House members and Fargo Rep. Josh Boschee posted it to his Facebook page with the attached directive, “Discuss.”

And boy, did they ever.

    What is truly offensive is that these clowns are wasting time and taxpayer money on things like this!

    I’m more offended that my Fargo Foolum subscription money was wasted to run that story, it that clown is that easily offended then he’s in the wrong line of business. Perhaps librarian or yogurt sales might be more up his alley. What a complete putz, as is the District that voted such a light weight into office.

      But, but, but … don’t you know he’s the first openly gay legislator in ND? The Forum has only run that “breaking news” in 4 or 5 different stories.

    That’s offensive? Seriously? I’ve seen stuff women forward around which is 10x worse and nothing is ever said yet alone written about in the paper

    This is something you forward to a few friends. Not to the entire legislature.

    This guy is dumber than a box of rocks.
