Georgia says no to philandering dead presidents

From the "my home state embarrasses me sometimes" file:

A bill designating Jan. 30 as Franklin Delano Roosevelt Day in Georgia has been stalled by a Republican representative, who says he is acting on behalf of a constituent opposed to honoring the randy former president.

"I understand my constituent's concern that it doesn't make a good statement," said Rep. Calvin Hill, who is now investigating claims about FDR's extramarital affairs (already well-documented). "If I find that's true, I personally won't be able to vote for it."

Meanwhile, Georgia's students rank last in the nation in SAT scores.
