It does appear that's the case.
John Fleming, a Republican US representative from Louisiana, made a dimwitted mistake on his Facebook page last week. Hell, it might be even more embarrassing than naked pics! Here's what happened: Fleming missed the obvious humor of a satirical piece by The Onion and posted the fake piece to his Facebook followers as a real thing to take seriously. How did this man get elected?He linked The Onion's fake piece about Planned Parenthood's $8 billion Abortionplex (it comically describes nightclubs, movie theaters and bars inside the fake clinic), saying it was more information on Planned Parenthood and "abortion by the wholesale". THE MAN DIDN'T KNOW THE ONION IS FAKE NEWS.
