Why Doesn't Heidi Heitkamp Support Fair Trials For The Accused?

Senator Heidi Heitkamp is on a statewide tour touting the Senate’s passage of the Violence Against Women Act. The intent of Heitkamp’s tour is blatantly political – Rep. Kevin Cramer will be up for re-election at the top of the statewide ballot next year, and Heitkamp clearly intends to use the VAWA as a wedge

Heidi Heitkamp, John Hoeven Help Pass Unconstitutional Violence Against Women Act

During the North Dakota Senate campaign last year, liberal Democrat Heidi Heitkamp was quick to lambaste her opponent Rick Berg for a “war on women” because House Republicans were resisting the re-authorization of the Violence Against Women Act.

Opposing Abortion In Instances Of Rape Is Ok If You're An Obama Nominee

Remember when liberals were flipping out about a “war on women” because certain Republican candidates didn’t think abortion was ok in instances of rape?

Obama's Own Personal War On Women

For someone quick to accuse his political enemies of sexism, President Obama sure doesn’t have a lot of women working for him.
