Which Ohio Congressmen Despise Women?
Today the House of Representatives finally passed the inclusive version of the Violence Against Women Act, a formerly noncontroversial measure that had come up for renewal. In their ongoing efforts to make even the most routine matters a source of huge conflict and an opportunity to try to stymie Democrats and paralyze the presidency, Republicans were insisting that they would only renew the measure if certain groups — such as Native-Americans, immigrants, and LGBT people — were excluded. Apparently in their little straight white male world, some people are less worthy of protection than others.
So who in Ohio voted against the measure in the end? The Hall of Shame includes five ghastly misogynists, all Republicans, naturally. (Of course, three of our four Democrats are women anyway).

These people are mean-spirited individuals, who put ideology before the needs of actual people. I hope if you live in their districts you will let them know that you don't approve of that.
