Democrats aren’t the only ones who don’t seem to know or care what the Constitution they swore to uphold says. Turns out some in the GOP need to go back to their high school civics lessons as well.

Congressman LoBianco could not tell the 1st Amendment – which restricts the government from interfering in religion, speech, press, petition and assembly – from Article I – which creates the very legislature where he serves. I don’t expect everyone to be a constitutional scholar but I do expect law makers to have a basic understanding of the document which grants them the authority they have.
