Glenn Grothman: throws children victims of lead poisoning under the bus. Part Deux.

A bill fast tracked through the Republican controlled legislature when things started to look bad in the courts. Hm. With anonymous memos from somewhere containing material the origins of which our Glenn couldn't identify -- even though he introduced the bill? Uh huh.

And then he inserts his own scientific expertise into the mix by wondering whether lead in paint has any effect on the children exposed to it.


Crime and Courts: Further fast-tracked 'tort reform' would work retroactively

Grothman didn't restrict his comments to the bill. He questioned the notion, which has been well-documented over decades, that paint in the home can cause lead poisoning.

"Quite frankly, it's scandalous that lawyers are leading people to believe that the lead paint in these houses is responsible for the increases in the (lead) levels in their blood," he said.
