This is Representative Ken Tschumper
of La Crescent and the subject of Wednesday's post. He was identified for me by the Welfare Rights folks who were protesting in front of the House yesterday. Rep. Tschumper
was standing near the door to the House Chamber when I recognized him as the man who told me he was ready to support marriage equality, so I asked the Welfare Rights protesters if they knew who he was. They did.
It would be nice if he could receive some acknowledgement and support from the queers in his district, 31b. Incidentally, La Crescent is the "Apple Capitol" of Minnesota and just across the Mississippi from La Crosse, WI. Sounds like a nice place to visit.
