Another Classy Arizona Legislature Moment: Jack Harper Edition

I guess we can be thankful that Rep. Jack Harper of Surprise isn't running for re-election this year (although he told supporters in an email that he wanted to be Arizona Secretary of State or an ambassador appointment), but he's focused on disgracing whatever dignity might be left in the office on his way out, sending emails out calling a person who cared enough to email legislators a "baby-killer" and suggesting they move to China. Rep. Harper has since apologized for his "abrasiveness".

Deborah,

The only “laughing stock” in Arizona is the Democratic Party that has lost seats in the state legislature for five consecutive election cycles. Maybe you should change your baby-killer message. Why don’t you move back to China where your “party” controls the message by force.

Jack

State Representative Jack Harper

More from the email exchange below the cut, but does it really take that much restraint to just send a banal dismissal back to people you disagree with, even with an issue as contentious as this one? Jack Harper isn't exactly known for his decorum, but I guess we get what we pay for with our representatives these days.
