- GOP Fuming Over Rape Vote [✜]
Lindsey Graham (R-SC - who voted against the Franken amendment):
I think it would be helpful for Sen. Franken to come forward and say, 'I'm not suggesting that anybody who votes for [sic] my amendment is indifferent to crimes against women or anybody else,'
Al Franken has never suggested that anybody who voted against his amendment is indifferent to crimes against women or anybody else. But the Republicans who voted to support rape (75% of the caucus) are catching a lot of heat for their vote and they have to blame someone - surely they can't take responsibility for voting against a woman's right to sue her sexual assailants and the company's that protect them.
