Courtesy of a link at Dad29’s place, we learn that a Pennsylvania legislator has a problem with the influx of oil workers into his State.
Democratic Representative Mike Sturla of Lancaster County wrote in an e-mail to a reporter that workers at well sites are “spreading sexually transmitted disease amongst the womenfolk.”
. . .
Sturla defended his comments during a House Democratic Caucus meeting on Marcellus Shale. He said other industries bringing “thousands of people” into the state would also result in a rise in STDs.
“It’s just you can’t whitewash it and say it doesn’t exist,” said Sturla.
There’s more at the link.
What can one say, except:
- Oh, those fracking oil workers!
- I’ve never heard of whitewash being able to cure STD’s, so ‘whitewashing it’ won’t work anyway!
