(Exempt) Harry Reid blocks Republican request to pass bill cracking down on rapists
Washington Examiner ^ | 4/11/14 | Joel Gehrke

Posted on 04/12/2014 5:04:20 PM PDT by Libloather

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., scheduled a Friday session that won't have any votes, rejecting Republican and Democratic requests that he allow a vote on a bill that would allow rape kits to be processed more quickly.

“Debbie Smith is an extraordinary woman and an effective advocate," Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., told the Washington Examiner. "She's personally asked me, John Cornyn and others to pass this critically important legislation that bears her name, and it's deeply disappointing that the majority leader is blocking it from reaching the president's desk. I will fight to get this done for the sake of Debbie and sexual assault victims everywhere.”

Smith didn't just persuade McConnell to push for the bill. Rep. Carolyn Maloney wanted the Senate to take up the bill when the House passed it earlier this week.

Well, to be fair, if they could process rape kits more quickly, half the Democratic Senate contingent would be off to prison, so it’s a strategeric thing for Dingy Harry.

Child rapists need more than 30 days or a year in prison, much more and judges who do this should be removed from the bench

If women were allowed to carry guns then the incidence of rape would decline. I suspect that Democrats and rapists would be against this.— Captain Compassion

Dirty Harry is to busy rapping We The People and cows to be bothered with right or wrong. Maybe he should ask his new best buddy’s from China about rape as they will get around to him one day.

Other than the fact that Reid is an __________________ (fill in the blank); why is the federal government doing anything on the crime of rape. Isn’t this a state issue?

.... Yes .... However ..... in the eyes of the public .... Perception IS reality .... and the media keeps creating the perception that Democrat leaders are nothing but Righteous Holy Saints that have nothing but good intentions in their heart and the Conservatives are nothing but Evil Demonic beings that need to be wiped from the face of the earth.

The optics and perception of all this needs to be changed .... Repetition and CONSTANT bashing of their reputation needs to commence if this is to be achieved in this year of the Mid Terms.

my perception is that the federal government does way too many things which are unconstitutional. So instead of arguing the merits and excoriating his highness, let’s stop the BS. If this is the best the republicans can do, count me out.

I’ve said for years that judges who give out that kind of sentence (and I use that term loosely) are child molesters (or rapists) themselves
It’s the only explanation I can come up with for being so lenient

Is this another of your intelligent opinions.

Put the bottle down and have some coffee.

If you don’t understand basic principles of the power of the federal government vs the state, get someone you look up to to explain it to you.

I’m sorry I missed the part about child rapist being let off. And what do you think the feds can do about it? How about having the feds take over 50 criminal justice systems so people don’t get let off.

Now apologize and go sit in the corner.

Last bon mot to you. I got caught in the quagmire with you before, not gonna happen tonight. make up whatever spin or lie you want and it will be memorialized on the web.

Harry Reid’s “War on Women”. Since he is a frontman for Obamie the Commie, it’s also “Obama’s War on Women”.

Let’s see what NOW has to say, some day, some year, some century from now.

I guess my problem is that we seem to “need” laws for every aspect of everything. All laws have some form of unintended (or even intended) consequences. I wish the hell that our “lawmakers” weren’t so damn active with so much bullcrap that nobody even knows how many laws there are or when one might be arrested for “breaking” one of them.

Remember, the Democrats unified to support a rapist and sink stainer, Bill Clinton.

Now they want his “wife” to become the next Oval Office Occupant.
