Islamophobic Lawmakers Demand to Know Purpose of Mop Sink

Posted By on Mon, Mar 25, 2013 at 12:36 PM

A couple of Islamophobes in the legislature thought a Capitol restroom had been remodeled to accommodate Muslims washing their feet before praying.

No, it's just a mop sink.

In the AP's Erik Schelzig's hilarious story, Sen. Bill Ketron admits he's one of the lawmakers who inquired about the mop sink's purpose. The other one, Rep. Judd Matheny, was too embarrassed.

"I don't know what you're talking about. It's not ringing a bell," said Matheny, who joined Ketron in 2011 in sponsoring a bill to criminalize Islam.

Update: Southern Beale comments on the creeping of Sharia law into our Capitol's bathrooms:

Fer crying out loud … Who in their right mind sees a dang sink and immediately gets all scared about ZOMG ISLAMOFASCISM!? Get some help, guys. Like, of the medicinal sort? Maybe? I do not want to know what reality looks like to these guys.
