Rep. Cynthia Davis (R-O’Fallon) was caught flat out lying about her statement that fathers aren’t nurturers.

To give some context, Davis proposed a scholarship for stay at home moms to go back to school after their children are older. Sounds great, but she excluded stay at home dads from the same legislation. This wasn’t a simple oversight, either – she actually was quoted as saying men aren’t natural nurturers, in part because they can’t breast feed.

And now she’s lying about saying that:

And remember, this is the chair of the the House Children and Families Committee, the one Rep. Jeanette Mott Oxford can’t serve on because certain colleagues found her “offensive.”
