Kentucky lawmaker makes stupid rape comment

Republicans say lots of stupid things, and usually people just forget about it after it gets swept under the rug, so the GOP is never held accountable. This time needs to be different.

Yesterday, during an important legislative hearing, Kentucky State Sen. Dan Seum (R-Louisville) told rape victims and their families who were speaking to lawmakers that "this government through its intrusion has done more damage to me" than rapists have done to their victims.

The rape survivors and victims' families who appeared at the hearing were outraged.

Naturally, when confronted with this story, Kentucky Republican leaders immediately began pointing fingers at political foes.
