Lawmaker Seeks Corporal Punishment Bill

Montana state Rep. Jerry O'Neil (R) has introduced a bill that would allow criminal defendants to bargain with a judge for corporal punishment in lieu of time behind bars, the Great Falls Tribune reports.

"The measure is already raising eyebrows and is sure to catch the attention of those on the lookout for 'bat crap crazy' legislation this session. Republican leadership has been doing its best to tamp down any potential bills the other side might use to embarrass the GOP as they work to craft a budget. This one apparently didn't get tamped."
