Sounds like a nut sandwich to me (although to his credit he carries his share of the water for pro-gun causes).

Bill would ban unwanted tracking devices in bodies

If the House of Delegates has its way, Virginians soon will be protected against the threat of having human tracking devices implanted into their bodies.
Del. Mark Cole’s bill, HB53, makes the implantation of such a device without a person’s informed written consent a misdemeanor. The measure won preliminary approval Tuesday.
Cole, R-Fredericksburg, said the bill was requested by constituents who told him some employers have begun using such devices to keep track of employees.
Arguing against the bill, Del. Robert Brink, D-Arlington, said that when he campaigned for office last fall, he never heard any constituents express concern about human tracking devices – or, for that matter, about “the danger of asteroids striking the earth or the threat posed by giant alligators in our city sewer systems.”
“Let’s concentrate on real-world problems,” he pleaded.
The bill was approved on a voice vote with no further debate.
