Florida Republican Charles Van Zant is under fire. A YouTube vid surfaced where Van Zant basically claims the state’s new testing system “will promote homosexuality among students.”

A Washington, D.C.-based non-profit group called American Institutes for Research won the right to design Florida’s standardized tests. Van Zant had harsh words for this victory in a speech given in March.

“These people that will now receive $220 million from the state of Florida, unless this is stopped, will promote double mindedness in state education, and attract every one of your children to become as homosexual as they possibly can,” Van Zant said in the video.

Sure, that’s fun to read, but let’s watch the old loon in action.

Well, standardized tests are gay, but not that kind of gay. Ask any student, they’ll tell you the same.
