How cow! This guy got elected in Nebraska? Gosh I feel old. I remember when that state was nothing but good, proper, rednecks. What the hell happened?
He’s probably elected from a liberal/black district in Omaha.
I remember this POS from when I lived in Nebraska. He has been in the legislature for at least 40 years.
Basically, he represents the only ghetto in Nebraska.
His district is the majority black district in North Omaha, he keeps getting reelected because he hates white people.
It’s not a state full of “proper” rednecks. That’s democrat thinking.
The shitbag is continually elected by his constituents in North Omaha who are the same ethnic persuasion as he is. He’s not elected by the majority of the state. It is the state legislature elected by small districts.
He has been doing this since at least the 60s. There was a short period where the seat was held by a corrupt Omaha city councilwoman, interestingly enough by the name of Brenda Council.
The long held myth in Nebraska is that the Unicameral legislature is non-partisan. Pure fiction.
None of the “non-partisan” state senators have the nads to stand up to him or they are “non-partisan” democrats.
From outside of the legislature, on the talk radio stations and the general public, he’s taking a beating over this but it will make no difference.
Hell Ernie’s been in the Nebraska legislature since before Nixon resigned! In fact they passed term limits mainly to get rid of him, which they did...for a few years. The idiot black woman who took his Omana seat was so stupid she used campaign funds to play the slots at gambling casinos and got caught, and Ernie was able to run again for his old seat after sitting out for four years, and won.
He has been there since the 70’s.
