I Do Not Think It Means What You Think It Means

Gateway Pundit finds a story so absurd you know a Democrat has to be at the center of it.

Democrat Representative Michael Sturla has made the ludicrous claim that fracking causes the spread of STD's "amongst the womenfolk."

While it's refreshing to see that someone has picked up John Murtha's mantle of severely bigoted Pennsylvania Democrat, perhaps even more refreshing is Sturla's response to criticism of his bigotry.

“This is in the heart of the drilling area” said Sturla, as he read from the report.  “Other issues: an increase in sexually transmitted diseases.  One of the recommendations: increased Department of Health availability of services related to STDs and substance abuse.” 
“I don’t make this stuff up,” said Sturla.  “Should we not have drilling in the state because of that?  No, but it’s one of those impacts that we need to deal with.  In the Marcellus Shale Commission report, it says we should deal with it.”
Bigoted Comedy Gold.

Oh, and as an added bonus, (based on Ed Schultz's criteria) he's a racist!
“It’s just you can’t whitewash it and say it doesn’t exist,” said Sturla.
Fracking?  Drilling?
