Worst Persons

Today's worst brought to you by Republican Florida state Rep. Kathleen Passidomo, for engaging in the fine art of blaming the victim.

This may be one of the most heinous comments I've ever seen.

During debate over a bill that would legislate a dress code for Florida students, Passidomo blamed the alleged gang raping of an 11-year-old in Cleveland, Texas on the way the young girl was dressed.

"There was an article about an 11 year old girl who was gangraped in Texas by 18 young men because she was dressed like a 21-year-old prostitute," Passidomo declared.

"And her parents let her attend school like that. And I think it’s incumbent upon us to create some areas where students can be safe in school and show up in proper attire so what happened in Texas doesn’t happen to our students," she added.

An 11 year old girl is raped by 18 boys and young men, and it's somehow her fault because of the way she dressed. Apparently it's also her parents fault that their 11 year old daughter was gang-raped by a pack of wild animals.

Kathleen Passidomo, worst person in the goddamn world.
