Congressman Grothman On John Oliver Satirical Piece

The satirical piece on Congressman Glenn Grothman recently featured on John Oliver’s HBO show didn’t fluster the federal lawmaker. Grothman says most of the things that were poked fun at occurred while he was in the State Senate and he’s proud of his accomplishments in the legislature. He says he was very effective in the State Senate. He says he did a lot to try and reduce the regulatory burden on Wisconsin businesses and reduce the tax burden while he was assistant majority leader. He says when you fight for change you make enemies. He says he’s sure there are a lot of left-wingers in Hollywood and he is probably not their favorite congressman. He says he is not a big fan of left-wingers in Hollywood so the feeling is mutual. The piece aired on This Week Tonight with John Oliver.
