Rep. Mary Franson

fransonI suppose that the four names that come to mind quickly, for me, these days, when you’re talking about the worst – and most offensive – right-wing insanity in the Minnesota House are Rep. Steve Drazkowski (R-Mazeppa), Rep. Glenn Gruenhagen (R-Glencoe), Rep. Peggy Scott (R-Andover), and Rep. Mary Franson (R-Alexandria). It’s the last of those who is drawing the wrong kind of headlines, this time.


As if launching sexist and racist attacks against Parkland student activist Emma Gonzalez over the weekend wasn’t enough, one pro-gun conservative is now bolstering her attack on young activists by likening their demands for gun control to Nazism.
In a series of tasteless Facebook posts, Minnesota Republican Rep. Mary Franson compared March For Our Lives protesters to Hitler youth. She then apparently deleted her Facebook account.

Franson’s DFL-endorsed opponent in 8B is Gail Kulp.
