U.S. Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI), one of the most unpopular of all of America’s senators, came close to loosing re-election last week.
In that hard-fought race even his top state newspaper told voters to throw him out of office. “Election deceiver, science fabulist, billionaire benefactor.

In an apparent effort to win re-election, Johnson said he would not oppose a pending bill to protect same-sex marriage.
