Jeers To Diva of Distortion: Nuxoll

In his weekly Cheers & Jeers column, Marty Trillhaase/Lewiston Tribune jeers … Idaho state Sen. Sheryl L. Nuxoll, R-Cottonwood. Writes Marty: In the her brief legislative career, Nuxoll has shown contempt for:

  • The U.S. Constitution - Nuxoll wanted to steal the 2012 election from President Obama and hand the White House over to Republican Mitt Romney.
  • The Idaho taxpayer - Until she was forced to return it, Nuxoll last spring misappropriated nearly $2,000 in public funds for a blatantly political brochure.
  • Facts - Last year, Nuxoll warned Obamacare would undermine Catholic church institutions - a stance Idaho Catholic schools, the Catholic Diocese of Boise and Catholic Charities of Idaho all repudiated.
  • History - In 2011, she claimed Obamacare would “take our children away, which is the same way the Nazis did.”

Now, the diva of distortion has reached into the crypt and plucked from it the most egregious analogy of all: the Holocaust. More here.

Question: Anyone have a description for Sen. Nuxoll that's better than “diva of distortion”?
