Friday Boner

BONER CANDIDATE #1: EQUAL PAY FOR EQUAL WORK? NO, NO, NO.

The Vice Chairman of the Wasatch County GOP is apologizing after a letter to the editor he wrote regarding equal pay for women prompted sharp criticism. James Green wrote the letter published in both the Wasatch Wave and Park Record, and he targeted Senate Bill 210—which in part would require employers to adopt base-line policies about equal work and equal pay.

Trump appeared briefly to be unaware of what the initials stood for, and so Ryan asked more pointedly.

A teacher in southwest Michigan was caught on camera Thursday while strapping a student to a chair with duct tape — the same week a group of instructors from the same school were caught playing a lewd game on camera. The chemistry teacher at Bangor High School was filmed wrapping duct tape around a 16-year-old student’s chest to stop him from gesturing with his hands — claiming he distracting the class, according to WWMT-TV.
