MSNBC's Keith Olbermann has picked up on statements suggesting illegal immigrantsby Republican Marg Baker, a tea party candidate for the House District 48 race in mostly in north Pinellas, opening his Worst Person in the Wold segment with "Marg knows just what to do about them illegal varmints."

From staff writer Demorris A. Lee's story: A candidate for House District 48 says that illegal immigrants are such a problem for Florida that "camps" should be built to house them until they can be sent back to their homeland.

"You don't need to think of them as prisons or as luxury accommodations, just regular homes like a lot of poor people live in," said Marg Baker, who's seeking the Republican nomination for the statehouse seat that covers much of northern Pinellas County.

"Collect enough illegal aliens until you have enough to ship them back. E-verify … but we have got to get the illegal immigrants off the streets."
