John Gilmore has been outspoken in Republican Party of Minnesota circles for a long time. He was active in the old Senate District 65 Republicans as an officer. Most recently he has taken Minnesota State Republican Senators to task for fumbling the ball on a bill to increase the punishment on parents who have Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) performed on their daughters. The Minnesota House Republicans led, by Speaker Kurt Daudt & Majority Leader Rep Joyce Peppin fast tracked Rep Mary Franson’s bill against FGM that had bi-partisan support to get it passed before the end of session. The Senate Republicans dragged their anchor and didn’t get a parallel bill passed. Rep Franson’s bill has been tabled in the MN State Senate.
John Gilmore also has a podcast show that he first started with Bill Glahn but now he runs it solo, called Gilmore & Guests.
