Bruning said he had visited a doctor before Thanksgiving after choking on some food. He suspected acid reflux, a disease in which stomach acids churn up into the esophagus, but the physician suggested he also undergo a colonoscopy.Below: video of Bruning insinuating that an opponent, former Nebraska Attorney General Don Stenberg (in 2012's GOP Nebraska Senate primary that both lost to Deb Fischer) was a pedophile. Stenberg's campaign twitter bot had asked to "follow" Bruning's 14-year-old daughter. At the time Bruning's own campaign twitter account was also following at least one 16-year-old girl.

Uber-homophobe, 44-year-old Nebraska AG, Jon Bruning, has cancer
Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning, who once compared marriage equality to a man wanting to marry a chair or his pet and who had legislation introduced making it a felony for a person diagnosed with HIV to sneeze in the direction of a cop, will have eight inches of his colon removed today in an effort to arrest his cancer. The Omaha World-Herald says he will be hospitalized for four to seven days but intends to continue to seek reelection in 2014.
