A comment that an Iowa Legislator called a bad joke was caught on a live microphone in the Iowa House of Representatives. Speaker Pro Tem Republican Jeff Kaufman was videotaped and recorded on a live mike off the record during a lull in a debate Friday on a Bill that would allow those in Iowa to carry guns in public without background checks. He called the bill “The give a handgun to a schizophrenic bill.” This is a “hot potato” issue in the state.
He and another legislator had been joking around about caucus business and the conversation turned to what is sometimes called the “Alaska Bill.” One of the House members asked what the “Alaska Bill” was and that was when he made his sarcastic joke about the Bill’s name. His joke refers to what apparently Democrats have been calling the bill. Democrats are trying to make political points by calling Kaufman's frivolous comment his true feelings about the "dangerousness" of the bill.
The Speaker Pro Tem later explained that he takes mental health issues seriously. He also said that a relative several generations back died in a mental institution from complications from a mental disorder. He also was a member of a county mental health task force previously.
Although this gaff does not come close to Ronald Reagan saying, "My fellow Americans. I'm pleased to announce that I've signed legislation outlawing the Soviet Union. We begin bombing in five minutes," it was probably as personally embarrassing.
