Press
NBC News


Denison, IA


please press:  www.nbcnews.com

ezs note:  I know that some more conservative transgender people might feel a bit slighted, but when a Republican leader does a really good thing, I try not to let it pass by.  If you live in Iowa (especially the 18th district) be sure to thank Rep. Holt.

ezs note:  4th district of Iowa (most of Sioux County) - Ah, Skyler.  Dont'cha just love him?  No? Then may I suggest organizing the Democratic party with the goal of ousting Skyler.  Did I say it was easy? Nope.  Never said it would be.  But ousting Skyler - doesn't that sound good?
