Remember when Democrats accused Republicans of waging a war on women? Where are they now? A Democrat rep. from Arizona just said he wanted to punch a Republican woman in the throat.
Do threats of violence against women not matter to Democrats anymore?
The Daily Caller reports:
Arizona Dem On Female Republican: ‘I Wanted To Punch Her In The Throat!’
A Democratic state representative in Arizona said he wanted to inflict violence on a female colleague in the state Senate because she sponsored legislation expanding the state’s school voucher program.
“I wanted to punch her in the throat!” Rep. Jesus Rubalcava wrote on Facebook about state Sen. Debbie Lesko, whose legislation was signed into law last week by Gov. Doug Ducey.
“As a survivor of domestic violence from a previous marriage, Representative Rubalcava’s Facebook post saying ‘I wanted to punch her in the throat’ was very disturbing and totally inappropriate especially since he is an elementary school teacher and legislator,” Lesko said in a statement to the Arizona Republic. “I hope in the future that he debates issues based on their merit in a civil manner.”
If this guy was a Republican, this would be front page news for a week.
Will the media even question him?
