A Republican congressman disenchanted with his party's stance on women's issues urged attendees at a rally to give money to Democrats to send a message to the GOP.
"I think these are very precarious times for women, it seems. So many of your rights are under assault," Rep. Richard Hanna (R-N.Y.) told a crowd at a rally in Washington, D.C., for the Equal Rights Amendment, according to the Huffington Post. "I'll tell you this: Contribute your money to people who speak out on your behalf, because the other side my side has a lot of it. And you need to send your own message. You need to remind people that you vote, you matter, and that they can't succeed without your help."
Hanna, who is pro-choice, went on to encourage women to become more vocal on issues that were important to them. Hanna was the only Republican congressman at the rally.

Later she said that her only connection to the Republican party is her voter registration card.
Well lady Hanna I suggest you GTF out of the republican party and go hang with your pansy commie friends... be a real woman and do the right thing...
And when we elect Republicans to the Congress we can turn this all around I am continuously told. LOL!
Pandering fool....nothing more than self interest. Apparently he’s forgotten how Dems have treated women See, e.g. Kennedys, Clinton, Spitzer, der Weinerschnitzel
This representative should be shot, and her house burned to the ground, and her husband, and kids should be shot when they run out of the burning house....

Now the whine is “too few elected women in this country compared to other countries.” YEAH? Would those complainers vote for Palin, Bachman Haley, Condoleeza Rice, Coulter, Ingraham, Malkin, Whitman, over Obama? No. I bet not. When they say “women” they don’t mean ALL women.
What a Dick!(Hanna)
Husband shmuzband, he is still a dickwad. Also, can you be sure he dose not have one?
Uh, wouldn’t that include his opponent?
The Republican who voted to keep the light-bulb ban. Jerk!
Bet he is a democrat running in a mostly republican area. Thats what Bloomy did to get elected mayor of NYC. Followed (whats his name) as mayor....old age name block...Oh yea, it just came to mind, Rudy G....
He's a she. Easy mistake since they call him "Hanna". Whatever he is, the infiltrator needs to be out.
Show some compassion.
Donate your surplus condoms to the DNC for distribution to Georgetown college girls.
What makes me think that Richard Hanna is a tool for Romney? If he is such a cheerleader for baby-killing, he would fit right in to the Mittwit’s cabinet. What part of New York State does this dimwit run in?
There, fixed it.
Name one, ya RINO eunuch.
Oneida County (Utica). This RINO treasure was a Huntsman supporter.
referring to him as a woman, probably even a liberal woman, was intentional on my part.
Richard Hanna is by far the most pro-abortion Republican in the U.S. House of Representatives—he even supports taxpayer funding of abortions. It is an abomination that such a liberal RINO could be representing an Upstate New York district that voted for Bush, McCain and Romney. Fortunately, it appears that Hanna finally will face a top-tier primary opponent, and she is a pro-life conservative state assemblywoman:
Assemblywoman Tenney would be a huge improvement over Hanna, and she’ll add to the ranks of pro-life women in Congress (she has a 100% rating from New York Right to Life). This will be this year’s most important NY primary election for pro-lifers and conservatives in general.
Hanna might as well switch parties. I hope Assemblywoman Tenney is able to take him out.
The GOP needs to kick Hanna out of the party. No big loss, he’s obviously a democrat.
That’s good to hear.
>> Hanna, who is pro-choice
If Hanna supports killing nascent, human life, then he’s a scumbag.
A woman’s liberty is not defined by having the right to kill nascent, human life.
And when they say “women’s Issues” they don’t mean MY issues. Course by “women” they don’t necessarily mean the female sex.
Maybe we can get Wendy Davis to endorse Hanna...
Excellent! I was afraid Hanna would not get a real challenger, a couple of nobodies were already in the race.
Hanna’s disgusting and traitorous comments peg him as a potential party switcher. Look for him to pull a Dede Scuzzobama and endorse the rat, should he lose.
What RAT? None has filed yet; the deadline is April 10.
I think that Hanna will get some other ballot line even if he loses the GOP primary (he always gets the Independence Party line), so if no Democrat runs it will be Tenney on the GOP and Conservative lines and Hanna on the Independence line, with liberals and Democrats (who will be turning out for Cuomo) all flocking to Hanna, so Hanna could win merely by getting a bit of the indie and/or GOP vote. Thus, we need to make sure that someone runs as a Democrat, and that the Working Families Party nominates the Democrat or some other liberal. It can’t be that difficult to get on the ballot as a Democrat—we just need someone to do it (even if he or she is not a real Democrat).
Why not, they share a platform.
This jagoff needs the Joe Schwarz treatment.
