Watergate has taken on a whole new meaning in Oklahoma as the watermelon has created a juicy controversy at the state capitol.
The watermelon has been designated as the state vegetable since 2007, thanks to Mr. Watermelon himself, Joe Dorman, who passed a bill making it so when he was a state representative. However, Republican Sen. Nathan Dahm is attempting to go Gallagher on the watermelon, claiming it is actually a fruit.
Dahm told The Wall Street Journal yes, The Wall Street Journal is writing about this issue that he felt Dorman had nothing better to do than to fight the repeal effort. As if repealing a state vegetable bill is a valid use of time when the state faces a budget hole and problems with everything from incarceration to education.
