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.
