A Republican wingnut from Chicago believes that dementia and autism are "punishments" from God over gay rights and legal abortion. Oh, and she also believes tornadoes are a direct result of equal rights and safe medical care.
Susanne Atanus is ridiculous and hateful, and like many other ridiculous and hateful people, she would like to hold political office.
"God is angry. We are provoking him with abortions and same-sex marriage and civil unions," she told the Daily Herald. "Same-sex activity is going to increase AIDS. If it's in our military it will weaken our military. We need to respect God."
Atanus has run for this seat twice before. She has, unsurprisingly, lost both times.
