Nebraska GOP Sen Candidate Compares Welfare Recipients To Scavenging Raccoons

In a speech this week, Nebraska AG Jon Bruning (R) compared welfare recipients to scavenging animals, suggesting the state is making it too “easy” for them. “The raccoons — they’re not stupid, they’re gonna do the easy way if we make it easy for them. Just like welfare recipients all across America,” said Bruning, who is running for Sen. Ben Nelson’s (D-NE) seat. “If we don’t send them to work, they’re gonna take the easy route.” Watch a video captured by American Bridge:
