#JapanPolitics - a lot of folks are sharing images and videos of the intolerant and idiotic Representative MP Sugita Mio.
A few things to know:
1) She has a degree in forestry from Tottori University
2) After a couple of years at Sekisui House Ltd. she became a local bureaucrat. 3) After 18 years as a local bureaucrat, she entered politics. In with the hyper-intolerant right clowns (Yamada Hiroshi, Hironuma Takeo, the Nakaharas) orbiting around Ishihara Shintaro, she snuck into office on the coattails of Hashimoto Toru's brief alliance with Ishihara
