Binnie trashes Arizona law he defended one week ago

Republican Senate candidate Bill Binnie “defended Arizona’s law requiring officers to question suspected illegal immigra[nts] about their status,” during a debate at St. Anselm College last week, according to NECN.

But at a second debate on Thursday Binnie came out against the law, reports New Hampshire Union Leader’s Clynton Namuo. And when his views were not well received, the famously hot-tempered millionaire became “agitated”:

Bill Binnie got less applause for his less conservative views. He was the only one to oppose a recently passed immigration law in Arizona that would allow police officers to ask people for proof of citizenship.

“We lost something for that,” he said to scattered applause. “We are less than we were before we had it. We have given up some of our life, liberty and pursuit of happiness as a result of that law.”

Binnie was also dinged when he said he supported the separation of church and state. One of the debate’s moderators asked him where in the Constitution it says separation of church and state.

When he couldn’t say where, Binnie became agitated.

“Let’s be clear about this: I’m not a lawyer,” he said. “I know how to create thousands and thousands of jobs.”

He added: “You want a legal question, I call a lawyer. I’m not a lawyer.”

    Bill Binnie is not ready for primetime. If you have a legal question call a lawyer? Try calling your ass to see if your head is still in it. How did someone this dense get rich? He must have won the lottery
