New Ad Shows Texas Gov Is Far From Only Republican To Make Offensive Comments About Rape
Progressive PAC MeidasTouch urges voters never to forget the offensive things Republicans said about rape in a new video that went viral on Twitter.
The clip resurfaces previous comments from GOP candidates, state officials, and national lawmakers, including 2012 and 2016 presidential nominee Rick Santorum and former white nationalist Steve King (R-Iowa).
Santorum says rape victims "should make the most of a bad situation" in old footage seen in the video.
King asks if there would be no population if there was no rape and incest?
The spot was released Tuesday after Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) defended his state's six-week abortion ban.
The clip has more than 700,000 views on Twitter. The influence of such partisans on the wavering voters is uncertain.
