Rep. Nass-TY recently introduced introduced legislation to bring back racist sports team names and logos.
Rep. Steve Nass, R-Whitewater, has drafted legislation to repeal the law, which allows any school district resident to file a complaint with the local school board over the use of offensive nicknames, logos or mascots. The state school superintendent can then order districts to stop using such symbols if they promote discrimination, harassment or stereotyping.
The bill also aims to void all orders issued by State Superintendent Tony Evers under the new law, which was signed by Gov. Jim Doyle in May.
Luckily for Wisconsin, that bill died in committee, much to the chagrin of Representative Nass-TY.
“The indians have apparently put enough pressure on (Committee chair, state rep. Karl)Van Roy to kill the bill,” Nass tells WTMJ. “He does not have an interest in holding a hearing.”
Now Rep. Nass can move onto more important things like:
* Or applying for the job of Wisconsin\'s director of tourism.
Steve Nass, the walking billboard advertisement for why we need competitive districts and how bad career politicians can be.
