South Dakota GOP Senate Candidate Compares Food Stamp Recipients To Animals

A Republican candidate for South Dakota’s open Senate seat on Monday likened people who receive food assistance to animals, implying that both become dependent on handouts.

Dr. Annette Bosworth, a first-time candidate who styles herself after Sen. Ted Cruz and Rep. Steve King, shared an image on her campaign’s Facebook page insisting that the message of a “please do not feed the animals” sign in parks should be applied to food stamp recipients.
