Today In Republican Misogyny


Shorter Ken Buck (as DA): Once you’re previously consented to have sexual relations with someone, the consent then applies to future cases in which you didn’t consent.

The defense of Buck’s failure to prosecute, I suppose, might be that he personally doesn’t believe in this disgraceful bullshit, but the juries in his county would. Aside from the obvious problems with a prosecutor just accepting hypothetical sexism as fact when making decisions, the existence of a recording of a phone call in which her attacker confessed to raping her makes assertions that the case was just unwinnable pretty implausible. It’s hard to escape the conclusion that Colorado’s Republican candidate for Senate shares these sexist assumptions.
