Horrible Politicians: Maine Republican Edition

Horrible Politician QuotesAnother chapter from the never-ending saga of GOP politicians saying horrible things about women, rape, and gays.

Here’s a (quite old) quote from Maine Republican Lawrence Lockman, which, to be fair, he says he now regrets:

If a woman has (the right to an abortion), why shouldn’t a man be free to use his superior strength to force himself on a woman? At least the rapist’s pursuit of sexual freedom doesn’t (in most cases) result in anyone’s death.”

In all the horror of this quote, I do not even see any logic (except blatant misogyny).

Oh, and in case you wondered where he goes on about the gays, he thinks that they are committing “a perverted and depraved crime against humanity.” And because the American progressives do not see it that way, they are, in his view, assisting the AIDS epidemic.

Bonus fun fact: According to the article, Lockman at one point during the 1990s

appeared dressed as a vampire [!] outside the Federal Building in Bangor to protest the “vampire-nature” of the IRS and its “police-state” method of collecting taxes.
