'War on Women' Update: As State Senator, Obama Voted 'Present' On Protecting Rape VictimsTopics:
As President Obama and the Democrats continue pushing their bogus war on women meme on the public and it continues to flop, this news surely isn't going to help their meme:
In a 1999 legislative vote, then-Illinois State Senator Barack Obama was the sole state senator to not vote for for a bill that would protect sexual assault victims from having the details of their cases revealed publicly.Read the whole thing.
On May 11 of that year, Obama voted "present" on a bill, ultimately made law, that allows victims of sex crimes to request that their cases be sealed from public view following a criminal conviction. Illinois Senate voting records show that Obama was the only senator who did not vote in favor of the bill.
Obama's unique objection to voting for a bill meant to protect victims of sex crimes is a substantial departure from the picture he has attempted to paint for women voters.
It seems that Obama is only concerned about rape victims who want to have abortions (hat tip - The Lonely Conservative).
