Open letter to Representative Sheila Butt of Tennessee

Sheila Butt is the Tennessee State Representative who authored House Bill HB0043 which would forbid food stamp recipients from using them to purchase ice cream, cake, cookies, candy, etc. – anything high in calories and fat.  Butt seems to be a at least a closet racist who represents a gerrymandered Tennessee district and is currently Republican floor leader in the Tennessee House of Representatives.
According to the language of the bill, Individuals and businesses that violate the measure, should it become law, would be “fined $1,000 for a first offense, $2,500 for a second offense and up to $5,000 for a third or more offense in a five-year period.”
On her website Ms. Butt explains her reasoning for authoring in the bill:  “When you’re receiving taxpayer dollars, it’s not money that you’ve have earned. It’s money that other people have earned and is redistributed to you. Strings come along with that,”

Commenting during the Presidential campaign on Facebook on the Council on American-Islamic Relations urging of potential Republican presidential candidates to reject Islamophobia and reach out to American Muslim voters Butt wrote: ”It is time for a Council on Christian Relations and an NAAWP in this Country.”  Butt now claims that NAAWP was not an acronym for the “National Association or the Advancement or White People” as one would normally expect.  She now says she was revering to “Western People”

Butt is also the author of a children’s book “Does God Love Michael’s Two Daddies” which condemns “in a loving way” homosexuality.  She advertises herself as a big Christian, but I guess she has something against allowing poor kids to have ice cream and cake at their birthday parties.   Maybe their parents can put a few candles on there kids’ macaroni and cheese.  Oh wait, that might not be allowed either; too much fat.

Butt is a big supporter of Trump.  This is evidently the kind of deplorable that other deplorables vote for in Tennessee.

My email to Representative Sheila Butt:

I just read about your bill which would forbid food stamp recipients from using them to purchase ice cream, cake, cookies, etc. That’s right up there with your Tweet about the need to establish a NAAWP (National Association for the Advancement of White People), but I think that David Duke beat you to it. Don’t you realize that you are making a laughing stock of the State of Tennessee.

By the way, based on your latest pictures it appears that you need to take your own advice and stay away from the ice cream, cake, cookies, etc.
