Rep. Virginia Foxx Leading The House’s Education Committee Is Bad For The Tyler Clementis Out There

Just because Rep. Virginia Foxx, the North Carolina Republican, disagrees with President Obama about education policy (like having the goal of increasing college grads) doesn’t make her unqualified to become leader of the House’s higher education subcommittee. But the former community college president’s vehement denial that, say, Matthew Shepard was the victim of a hate crime might make ya think twice. (Foxx has since changed her mind about Matthew’s death, which had nothing to do with her being raked of the coals by The Gays.)
