Foxx Criticizes Obama And Gets His Autograph


U.S. representative Virginia Foxx, who is perhaps best known for her opposition to the federal hate-crimes law passed last year, says that she thought President Obama's address at the House Republican caucus retreat was "another lecture." But, at the same time, she made sure to get the president's autograph after the speech.

Foxx posted the following message on Twitter Friday: "Pres gave us another lecture. Our guys asked great questions. Need independent fact check for his comments. Got autograph." The White House confirmed that Foxx, who represents North Carolina, got her autograph, according to The Huffington Post.

Last April, Foxx told the House of Representatives that she thought it was "a hoax" to classify Matthew Shepard's 1998 murder as a hate crime. She made the remark, which you can see here, while Shepard's mother, Judy Shepard, was in the House gallery.
