Since when is losing a job a crime? Legislators that come up with these asinine ideas should be drug tested! Typical rethug posturing!

Why don't legislator's step up and volunteer to make their private bodily fluids public ... if they're clean no problems ... right?

Sorry, don't use drugs I just value the bill of rights unlike a lot of people who are willing to surrender their rights. While you are free to surrender your fourth and fifth amendment rights you are not free to surrender mine! Case closed! The founding fathers put those ten amendments in the constitution for a very good reason!

That 'simple task' is a violation of the fourth and fifth amendments. How many of your rights are you willing to surrender? If you don't like our bill of rights you should emigrate to a country that has no freedoms!
