Frivolous California Assembly resolution targets foul-mouthed Senator

As California continues to plummet toward complete financial collapse, lawmakers in the State Assembly this month put aside a slew of important issues and devoted precious legislative time to pass a resolution that would make the first week of March “cuss-free” in the Golden State.

ACR 112, as it is known, will likely face fierce opposition from Humboldt County’s Senate representative Pat Wiggins, whose staunch defense of her First Amendment rights emboldened her to launch the infamous “bullshit” remark aimed at an African-American pastor from a Sacramento-area church during a televised committee hearing in 2008.

While Wiggins’ increasingly erratic behavior has attracted widespread media attention and concern in political circles over her “outbursts, odd displays of affection and apparent inability at times to focus or remember” that some say is evidence of her stunningly rapid mental decline, staffers have adamantly maintained that the senator is competent and fully capable of fulfilling her duties. Wiggins’ most recent outburst a little over a week ago was a screaming tirade at an empty water container that lasted for several minutes and ended with what witnesses said was her moving threateningly toward a fellow senator that caused security and staffers to intervene. Wiggins’ press aid David Miller acknowledged to the media that the 69-year-old senator has a medical condition she’s being treated for, but Miller has routinely downplayed her “irritable” behavior as a byproduct of a hearing problem.

The resolution, which was co-authored by Assemblyman Wes Chesbro (D-Arcata), could mark the latest move by Democratic leadership in Sacramento to distance themselves from Wiggins. Cal-Channel, which televises the legislature’s proceedings, already pulled the plug on televised hearings that Wiggins chairs.

According to the text of the “No Cussing” resolution, any profane outburst from Wiggins during the first week of March would encourage the Santa Rosa-based Democrat “place money in a jar…and donate collected funds to charity.” Perhaps Wiggins, who is paid more than $116,000 annually by taxpayers and may not actually know who she is or where she is at any given moment, should send any collected money to the state’s coffers to help chip away at the ballooning budget deficit.

  1. Go fuck yourself Mirror

  2. Please don’t ask us to tweak another picture of Wiggins. Our eyes can’t take any more.

  3. When the owner of this page’s identity is revealed it will be tempting to give him or her a pass and allow them to live among us like anyone else. They will get a wink and a smile from people who disagree with their tactics but agree with thir politics. This shouldn’t happen.

    The Humboldt Mirror has deepened the local resentment one side has for another and for this “Humbug” is a menace. Thankfully, the fear of being revealed seems to have neutered his or her posts as of late but you still are not welcome among civilized people.

    You will be outed and life will become very difficult for you. Take the high road and dismantle your blog. It is the best way to win back your soul.

  4. threats.

  5. Wow! You sure have a fan club Bugs!

    They are printing up targets in hopes that they can get mug shots of you!

  6. Keep the payments coming Rob, and I’ll keep the insults a-cumin’!

    Hugs!

  7. Is that also true of “the humboldt herald”?

    Seems to me the two balance each other out.

    In the meantime – Sacramento politicians fiddle while Rome burns – voting on things like onstreet parking and cussing… while Jamie Dimon, chairman of JP Morgan Chase, has warned American investors should be more worried about the risk of default of the state of California than of Greece’s current debt woes. California is a greater risk than Greece, warns JP Morgan chief

  8. Yeah, but it’s more fun to make fun of people’s appearances!

  9. Dearest Bonnie,

    Knowing you to be the even handed politician that you are (cough) I’ll be looking for your post to be cut and pasted into the Humboldt Herald in the next few minutes.

  10. You will be outed and life will become very difficult for you. Take the high road and dismantle your blog. It is the best way to win back your soul.

    OK, “Bonnie,” or whoever you are. Threats against an anonymous blog from an anonymous commenter like you seem weak. I doubt the Mirror has been neutered in the face of being revealed. More likely they are in a PBR fugue somewhere.

  11. boring!!!!!….again.

  12. Let’s get back to the subject at hand. Fuck that foul mouthed elected official.

  13. Pat is not the problem. It’s her handlers and scum bags like Wes Cheeseball. Now there is a real %#@*^%# #@%#^! He even makes my preacher cuss.

  14. Just goes to show you The Cheese will bit the hand that feeds him. He can not help himself. Women got sick and has problems so if you can’t fuck your family who else can you get close enough too!

  15. fucking ridiculous … and hilarious lol

  16. Hummm….*%$##@ Paykeeper, and the argument about the clean-up of the Balloon Tract, **&^%%$ Prog tools who keep spewing their bull*&^% all over the place.
    (*#@!!&&incumbents, who will never get my vote! And, last but never least, *&^^%$#@! Gallegos
    Well, that about covers it.

    Mr. Dog, sir, I simply cannot fathom why I do not have a refreshing beverage to cool my parched throat.
