Bruning Compares Welfare Recipients to Raccoons

Republican Jon Bruning currently serves as Nebraska’s Attorney General, but he has his eye on the Senate seat now held by Democrat Ben Nelson. In this video from the campaign trail, Bruning compares welfare recipients to scavenging raccoons, saying, “They’re going to do it the easy way if we make it easy for them.”

This footage was captured by an American Bridge tracker in Papillion, Nebraska, on August 6, 2011.
