Paugh's response: As governor, he'd like to be able to identify and imprison homosexuals for, as he says, their crimes against nature and mankind.
Even Uber-Con Tom Roten was dumbfounded by the jacknuttiness.
Roten seemed to almost gulp before he asked the next question.
Paugh's comments demonstrate one thing: what constitutes a "police state" and whether or not a government is too intrusive depends upon how one perceives the world. And from my perspective, Paugh's world-view is frightening.
