Virgil Peck, a Kansas state representative, isn't apologizing for suggesting, in a committee hearing on Monday, that if shooting feral hogs from helicopters proves to be an effective form of population control, it might also be the solution to the illegal immigration problem. Instead, Peck insisted he was joking, then threw his constituents under the bus. “I was just speaking like a southeast Kansas person,” Peck insisted. Sounds like a nice place. [LJ World]
