“Kansas state Senator Kay O’Connor said in 2001:
I think the 19th Amendment, while it’s not an evil in and of itself, is a symptom of something I don’t approve of.… The 19th Amendment is around because men weren’t doing their jobs, and I think that’s sad. I believe the man should be the head of the family. The woman should be the heart of the family.
And that’s all well and good, I suppose. After all, a state senator is fairly limited in her ability to restrict the rights that the 19th Amendment grants. But Kay isn’t content to be a state Senator. She’s filed to run for Kansas Secretary of State, a position where she’d be directly responsible for ensuring that voting rights are protected.”
Realizing I’m just pointing to the pointer. Still. It’s at least reminded me that I need to register to vote (against such outrageousness) in the state of Kansas.
