Apparently Sen. Jeff Danielson (D) Thinks Rep. Walt Rogers (R) is a Piece of $h!t

WARNING: Contains explicit language.

State Senator Jeff Danielson and State Representative Bob Kressig laughed and had big smiles on their face when one of their supporters called Republican lawmaker Walt Rogers a “piece of $h!t” at a recent campaign event.

As Democrat State Representative Anesa Kajtazovica talked about Rogers voting no on a particular piece of legislation, a man in the room blurted out, “piece of shit.” The comment was much to the delight to the people in the room.  Including Danielson and Kressig who can be seen nodding in agreement.

The man went on to yell, “Well, it’s what everybody thinks. Somebody, God dammit, somebody has to say it.” Kressig then bends over laughing, while Danielson continues to grin.

Is this the type of representation people want in Des Moines?
