From the informational Vote, MI site:

Personal: (gender, age, marital status, spouse's name and age, children's name and ages, home town, current residence)

An only child, Frank is the son of Frank and Susan Foster. His family extends throughout Emmet County and Sault Ste. Marie, and has a longstanding presence in the 107th.

No mention of wife or child.

And nothing in his Bio from the Michigan GOP site.

Potty-mouth and a liar.

Who tells the neighbor of a house they are visiting to stop mowing their lawn?

I think there is something missing in this reporting and I think it lies somewhere right around here:

...he walked up to the fence and asked Michigan Nurses Association staffer Julia Smith-Heck to stop mowing her lawn. They had a conversation about the "Protect Our Jobs campaign," to permanently enshrine collective bargaining rights in the Michigan Constitution, ... Foster became hostile and walked away.

I never really thought "coont" was a sexist term. An offensive term signifying extreme derision and antipathy, yes, that originated in sexual slang, for sure, but sexist, no. It's like cock. I'm as likely to use one or the other, regardless of gender. There's perfectly good reasons to call a person a coont, a motherfarker, a cock, a cocksucker, or any number of cranky names.

Of course, mowing your lawn isn't one of them. So, that said, if this story is true, it isn't so much sexist as it is hilariously elitist in believing that knowingly putting autistic kids in environments where they're going to be exposed to loud but normal noises is somehow wrong on the part of people who make those loud but socially normal noises.

Oh boo hoo, boo hoo, your autistic child can't handle loud noises. You are responsible for his well-being; you move to somewhere where he won't be exposed to that stimulus if you're that upset by it.

Well even though one would logically think that "cock" and "coont" would be synonymous terms, the only difference being gender, the only thing that really matters is how the terms are taken. You can call a guy either words but call a girl a coont and something bad is likely to happen. I don't make the rules, I just abide by them.

According to the article, he didn't ask her to stop mowing until the second conversation (the first conversation was about a political issue she supports and he doesn't). He walked away mad from the first conversation because they disagreed and only later did he return to mention that her mowing was bothering the child.

If the noise from the mower was really bothering his child, it would have been the first thing he mentioned, not politics.

"No, he just likes to quote Dane Cook in the middle of the street."

"Look, I'll give you ten bucks a piece if you come with me so I can call some lawnmowing b*tch a 'coont.'"

On Tuesday evening, Foster was visiting a home on Lansing's south side when he walked up to the fence and asked Michigan Nurses Association staffer Julia Smith-Heck to stop mowing her lawn.

Screw you buddy, she can mow her lawn when she wants, within reason.

He returned shortly afterward, demanding again that she stop mowing, saying it was bothering his autistic son.

Yeah, fark you again...

Foster said, "I want to introduce you to my son, Chase. I want to introduce you to the person whose night you ruined."

He then walked away, asking Smith-Heck, "Are you going to apologize?" She responded, "For mowing my lawn?" Foster said, "So you're not going to apologize"? She repeated, "For mowing my lawn?" Foster yelled across the street, "You're a coont!"


OK, now THAT's a paddlin'...

What a douchebag. WHy do people keep voting these pricks into office?

Now, on a totally different note...

He returned shortly afterward, demanding again that she stop mowing, saying it was bothering his autistic son. [Foster does not have children, according to his official bio information.]

Foster, a woman and a boy of about 3 or 4 came out and walked up to Smith-Heck and her neighbor. Foster said, "I want to introduce you to my son, Chase.


What is THAT all about? Has he got some honey on the other side of town, raising his love child in seclusion? Nobody let this cat get back in the bag, I want to know what's up with this little mess... I mean, it doesn't sound like he was at home, since it says he was "visiting" a home on that side of town...

It says his website is "designed to keep you up-to-date on current events in Michigan and inform you of the things that I'm working on as your state representative.", I sure hope clearing the air on this little clusterfark counts.

I live in the American Gardens Building on West 81st Street on the 11th floor. My name is Frank Foster. I'm 27 years old. I believe in taking care of myself, and a balanced diet and a rigorous exercise routine. In the morning, if my face is a little puffy, I'll put on an ice pack while doing my stomach crunches. I can do a thousand now. After I remove the ice pack I use a deep pore cleanser lotion. In the shower I use a water activated gel cleanser, then a honey almond body scrub, and on the face an exfoliating gel scrub. Then I apply an herb-mint facial masque which I leave on for 10 minutes while I prepare the rest of my routine. I always use an after shave lotion with little or no alcohol, because alcohol dries your face out and makes you look older. Then moisturizer, then an anti-aging eye balm followed by a final moisturizing protective lotion. If someone is mowing their law, I tell the coont to knock it off. There is an idea of a Frank Foster. Some kind of abstraction. But there is no real me. Only an entity. Something illusory.

I live in the American Gardens Building on West 81st Street on the 11th floor. My name is Frank Foster. I'm 27 years old. I believe in taking care of myself, and a balanced diet and a rigorous exercise routine. In the morning, if my face is a little puffy, I'll put on an ice pack while doing my stomach crunches. I can do a thousand now. After I remove the ice pack I use a deep pore cleanser lotion. In the shower I use a water activated gel cleanser, then a honey almond body scrub, and on the face an exfoliating gel scrub. Then I apply an herb-mint facial masque which I leave on for 10 minutes while I prepare the rest of my routine. I always use an after shave lotion with little or no alcohol, because alcohol dries your face out and makes you look older. Then moisturizer, then an anti-aging eye balm followed by a final moisturizing protective lotion. If someone is mowing their law, I tell the coont to knock it off. There is an idea of a Frank Foster. Some kind of abstraction. But there is no real me. Only an entity. Something illusory. And though I can hide my cold gaze, and you can shake my hand and feel flesh gripping yours, and maybe you can even sense our lifestyles are probably comparable, I simply am not there.

Bless you, sir. My wife, who worked in special education before have a child of our own with special educational needs (diagnosed Aspergers, but he's not socially inept... so I just say he's really high-strung) would applaud you.

And as a fellow father who has to deal with more than the usual number of meltdowns, *fistbump*


In related news, I went off on someone at work once and called her a biatch. In my defense, she had just made a personal insult against me, I had a family member dying of cancer, and I was stressed to the limit. Apparently HR had my pink slip ready to go within an hour, but my manager pulled strings and convinced them just to drag me to a room in HR and tell me what a very naughty boy I was.

First off, good on you. I used one for a few years. The drawbacks were it took 2 passes to get everything short. But it was good exercise. I like to find alternatives to electrical solutions when I can (hanging clothes instead of dryer, etc).

Second, noise pollution is a result of people thinking they can live their lives. Some are louder than others. That's kind of how it goes. Living like you are on egg shells just so you don't offend your neighbor isn't going to last very long.

Dr. Mojo PhD: I never really thought "coont" was a sexist term. An offensive term signifying extreme derision and antipathy, yes, that originated in sexual slang, for sure, but sexist, no. It's like cock. I'm as likely to use one or the other, regardless of gender. There's perfectly good reasons to call a person a coont, a motherfarker, a cock, a cocksucker, or any number of cranky names.


I agree with this. IMHO, "c*nt" is a gender-marked term but not any more offensive than, say, "cock", and (especially in some dialects of English) it isn't used to refer exclusively to women.

Except if you use more than Fark for news, you see that he was having a party and the woman was mowing the lawn to disrupt the party. There were children at the party but none were autistic and he denied using the c word. The conversation was Rep: "How long will you be mowing?" Nurse: "How long is your party?" Rep: "About an hour" Nurse: "Then about that long." No C word. No autistic children. Just an obnoxious neighbor mowing the lawn during a kids party.

While one person being a jackass is bad and he should be called out for it if it's true, I don't see how the rest of the Republican party had anything to do with it.

I mean let's look at the facts.. if the whole party had been involved her house would have been foreclosed on even though it was paid off, any kids taken away and sent to foster homes run by Catholic priests, and she would have been tossed into Guantanamo Bay for being a possible turrist. But none of that happened.

Maybe she could only mow the lawn during that time because she would have to be at work later in the day? Maybe the little snowflakes should get over the fact that the world continues without regard to their wishes?


Or maybe she's just a coont.

A woman is a coont because she mowed her lawn. Also noticed you never provided that citation for your little alternate story you were asked for. You know, the one where you breathlessly moan that there's no evidence for any of this... and then hustle back to tell us he denied calling her that, even though there's no evidence for his claim, either. Well then.

MusicMakeMyHeadPound: So other Rush Limbaugh calling a congressional witness a slut for testifying regarding the cost and necessity of birth control, Republicans pushing for mandatory transvaginal ultrasounds for rape victims, the Michigan House censuring its only three women in an abortion debate, the office of Nan Hayworth saying acid should be thrown in the faces of lady Congresspersons demanding equal pay and this Republican politician so deeply offended by a female mowing the lawn that he attacks her on the basis of her womanhood, you Libs have NOTHING to back up your baseless accusations of a "War on Women".

jjorsett: Hmmm, a "story" whose only source is an organization locked in political battle with the representative it accuses. Forgive me if I don't take this at face value without either a recording or confirmation from a witness that doesn't have a stake in this. Since he supposedly shouted this across a street, that should be an easy hurdle.


This is FARK..so it is automatically assumed to be true. If it is later proven false, Poe's Law will be claimed because of the last crazy story they heard which was also probably false.

Why do I always feel like with these stories there is missing information that might make both sides look equally bad? I mean, there is no justifiable reason to call a woman a coont, but if he asked her in a reasonable way to stop mowing, why didn't she? If my neighbor asked me to stop mowing because they were doing something at the time and didn't want to be disturbed, I wouldn't really have a problem with it. And maybe it is something with "activists", but why do these stories always involve people shouting obscenties at each other because they disagree on some issue?

I suspect that both sides here share some blame with this.

I'm with you. For the most part me and my neighbors live by the mind your own business and try to be friendly mentality. We have smaller city lots and it really is almost impossible you won't do something to piss off your neighbors and vise versa at some point. It really is just about accepting that, over looking some things that might irritate you, and them doing the same.

On a second note I find it funny how everyone attributes the c word to sexists males. I've heard it a lot more from women talking about other women that I have men.

The Lone Gunman: What I'm curious about is that, if he doesn't have a son (according to his own bio) where did this kid come from?

And who the hell drags their kid out for the purpose of yelling at his neighbor?


Drags a supposedly austic kid out to put him in the middle of a confrontation that involves screaming obscenities.

And he was freaking about the noise of a lawnmower upsetting the kid.

I don't mind the use of the feminine c-word so much. I have one, it has given me much enjoyment over the years. I don't think the word itself is or refers to something horrible. And if we can call men "dicks," then we certainly should be able to call women "coonts."

However, in this instance the word was used prejoritively in a completely unsuitable situation.

quickdraw: ugh. I hope his mother sees this.


On the one hand, I want to organize a campaign where we all sit down after sexist shiat like this, call the person's mother, and say, "Mrs. so-and-so, do you know what your son\daughter just did?".

On the other hand, those poor mothers are probably already aware and drowning their sorrows in many bottles of vodak.

Mad_Radhu: Slaxl: Let it go, coont has long since passed from the domain of sexist term to ubiquitous insult. It's even become a coonting verb, like 'fark' you can do anything with it.

I think Game of Thrones is going a long way towards mainstreaming it into an all purpose curse. Tyrion alone must uae the word a dozen times an episode.


I personally loved all Theon's raving about 'that coont with a horn!'

However, even though Game of Thrones may be mainstreaming it, I think the whole point of why it's used as an insult in the series is BECAUSE the world it's set in is so misogynistic that coont is the most insulting word they have, more than dick, asshole or farker. That is why coont and bastard are their top swear words, because belittling someone's masculinity or legitimacy of birth are actual sore points for them.

I think it's because coont is still taboo in our culture so it's used for impact value to the reader rather than any deliberate note about the misogyny of Westeros.

As a note, this is done pretty regularly in art. We also don't speak the "Common Tongue" of Westeros, so things are translated for our ear. Even in historically based settings, and even near-history like Deadwood, there was a conscious effort to move the profanity towards what sounds impactful to us today, instead of the more historically accurate religious-based words (ie: 'cocksucker' instead of 'God damn').
