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).

They are:

Steve Chabot
Bill Johnson
Jim Jordan (of course)
Bob "Who?" Latta
Brad Wenstrop

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.

And the ones who voted "yea"

Some of them are surprising. It wouldn't hurt to call or drop a line thanking them if you live in one of these districts,

Rep. Joyce Beatty (D-03)
Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-11)
Rep. Bob Gibbs (R-07)
Rep. David Joyce (R-14)
Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D-09)
Rep. Jim Renacci (R-16)
Rep. Steve Stivers (R-15)
Rep. Tim Ryan (D-13)
Rep. Pat Tiberi (R-12)
Rep. Mike Turner (R-10)
