State Rep. Mary Franson has apologized and removed a YouTube video that compared Minnesotas food stamp program to feed(ing) the animals.
It started Friday, when Franson, a first-term Republican from Alexandria, posted a week-in-review video on YouTube. She ran through the news about the new state budget forcast and ended with a plea to end child sexual abuse. In between, at about the two-minute mark, she turned to the welfare reform.
I'll read you this little funny clip that we got from a friend. It says, 'Isn't it ironic that the food stamp program, part of the Department of Agriculture, is pleased to be distributing the greatest amount of food stamps, ever.
Meanwhile, the Park Service, also part of the Department of Agriculture, asks us to please not feed the animals, because the animals may grow dependent and not learn to take care of themselves."
It didnt take long for the blogosphere to take notice. By 10 p.m. Friday, Franson tweeted an apology: For those offended at the video, I deeply apologize. I have asked for the video to be taken down ...
Her video was removed, but copies remain online.

OK it is back to being funny. Strike the motion to move the FSP to the DOI!
I think it's Miller Time
“Have you ever listened to what Yuri Bezmenov has to say? If not and you have an hour, please watch this video. It may interest you.”
I checked it out. Wow.
“I would say that it is happening or been happening.”
That’s the really scary part. We’re at the last stage... Everything he talked about has come to pass.
and without a shot being fired and that is the Art of Warfares highest form of warfare
TY very much for that link I really appreciated it. Goes a lot toward what I try to tell young people about understanding the origin behind all the nice sounding liberal causes.
Thank you, we need to get the word out.
A large precentage of our enlisted military qualify for and receive food stamps. I'd bet that the ones reading your comment are feeling really appreciated right about now.
The whole food stamp program is wrong and should be done away with.
Just be cause one qualifies for something doesn’t mean one should take it.
Mary Franson is an embarrassment. She was cheating on her husband during the campaign, and they divorced after the election. A waterbug possesses more intellect. I’m hoping she has a primary challenge in her new district.
