From the Current TV transcript: "The runner-up is Republican State Representative George Cleveland of North Carolina. At a hearing on legislation that would shred early childhood education in his state, Representative Cleveland announced, 'We have nobody in the state of North Carolina living in extreme poverty.'
"Extreme poverty is the income level below half of the poverty line. When he was then told that 729,000 North Carolinians lived in extreme poverty, Cleveland said that this was just the result of 'a government agency perpetuating a poverty class.'"
Cleveland finished second to conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh who suggesting if the government pays for contraception ("pay for you to have sex") he wants women to "post the videos online so we can all watch."
