    A female Democrat running for Congress in Kansas is dropping out of the race after allegations of sexual assault stemming from a 2005 lawsuit resurfaced during a recent interview. Mother-of-two Andrea Ramsey was asked by the Kansas City Star about a lawsuit regarding accusations of sexually harassing and retaliating against a male subordinate, Gary Funkhouser, who said he rejected her sexual advances in 2005. Court Documents show that Funkhouser and LabOne, a company where Ramsey was executive vice president of human resources, agreed to dismiss the case after mediation in 2006, according to the Star. Ramsey, from Leawood, Kansas, was...

    Many white liberal men have been busted committing all manner of sexual abuse and assaults from Hollywood to New York City to Capitol Hill. Unbeknownst to many on the left, racism within the very hallways of the entertainment industry has been dismissed and it's very apparent to many blacks that this whole Harvey Weinstein snowball has only become the movement it has become because the victims are 99 44⁄100% liberal white women. John Conyers' name was the ONLY House member named regarding the taxpayer-funded hush fund and is publicly being told to resign. The white guy Al Franken is hiding behind his...

    NEW YORK - After 12 years advocating for abortion rights, Joe Solmonese might have opted for a less divisive field of work. Instead, he is taking over leadership of the largest national gay-rights group at a time when the same-sex marriage debate rivals abortion for volatility and virulence. "My challenge is to talk about why the equality we seek is not just important to our community, but should be important to everyone," Solmonese said. "I have to believe in the optimism and fair-mindedness of the American people." Solmonese was named last week as the new president of the Washington-based Human...
  • Shaheen vs. women: Her loathsome sex trafficking vote

    Union Leader ^ | March 21. 2015
    U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen shamed herself with a vote that no one in New Hampshire should ever forget. That day, to her eternal discredit, she voted against a bill to help sex trafficking victims - on the order of her biggest campaign donor. The bill was the Justice for Victims of Sex Trafficking Act. Among its bipartisan list of cosponsors are Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte and Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. The bill would create a sex trafficking victim assistance fund, financed by revenue from criminal fines. Just before the bill was to come up for a vote, the abortion...

    WASHINGTON (February 3, 2015) - Hillary Rodham Clinton will be honored next month by EMILY's List, a Democratic fundraising powerhouse, as she considers a potential 2016 presidential campaign that could make her the first woman to win the White House. EMILY's List, which works to elect Democratic women who support abortion rights, said Tuesday that Clinton would appear at its 30th anniversary awards gala in Washington on March 3. The former secretary of state will receive the group's We Are EMILY Award to honor her leadership "as a fighter for women and families," said Stephanie Schriock, the group's president. Schriock...

    If there is one main takeaway from Tuesdays mid-term elections, its the fact that the phoney, baloney war on women is over. Planned Parenthood, NARAL, and their pro-abortion allies have desperately tried to tag pro-life groups and candidates with the anti-woman tag by claiming the oppose women by virtue of the fact that they oppose abortion and being forced to pay for abortion-causing drugs. oldwhitemenLast nights overwhelming victory for pro-life candidates showed the abortion-centered war on women strategy has completely failed. Most of the candidates in top-tier races where the war on women tactic was employed won their races. Abortion...

    The Dingell dynasty dates back to the era of FDR and theres very little that can stop it from rolling on. Rep. John Dingell announced Monday hes leaving the seat he took over from his father nearly six decades ago. And now his wife, Debbie Dingell, is planning to announce in the district Friday her candidacy for the open seat, according to a source close to Dingell. Dingell wasted no time putting together a campaign apparatus Monday, holding a conference call last night with her husbands former aides. She also may sever ties with the American Automotive Policy Council where...

    The influential women-in-politics group EMILY's List will tell supporters on Friday that as far as New York mayoral hopeful Anthony Weiner is concerned, "It's time to end this." "New Yorkers deserve better than the circus their mayoral race has turned into. I actually caught myself glad I'm not home where I'd have to see the cover of the NY Post on every street corner," communications director Jess McIntosh will write Friday morning in an email obtained by NBC News. Their proposed solution: Donating to Christine Quinn, who would be the first woman mayor of New York. "She's tough, she's...

    . . . you guessed it, “conservative, evangelical, Tea Party Republicans.” Speaking to an Emily’s List fundraiser, Fluke said that “GOP efforts to limit the availability of birth control” were “directly responsible for Weiner’s behavior.”“What men, and women want, above all is SAFE sex. It’s our constitutional right. So now the GOP is limiting our access to both birth control AND abortion on demand. So a poor person like me, I can’t afford to have sex, unless it’s unprotected, and if a poor person accidentally gets pregnant, it’s now almost impossible to get an abortion.”“That’s why so many men and...

    That's what some defeated House candidates from 2012 are hoping, at least. Several failed candidates who ran strong campaigns, but fell just short last year, are back for a rematch this election cycle. Whether they can use lessons learned in their losing campaign to change next year's results will go a long way in determining which party gains seats in the House.

    At the kickoff of a six-figure campaign to elect America's first female president in 2016, Emily's List President Stephanie Schriock addressed the question on everybody's mind: Will Hillary Clinton run? "There is one name that seems to be getting mentioned more than others," Schriock told reporters at the National Press Club Thursday. "We do not know if Hillary is going to run. But we're hopeful that she may." Schriock, whose group (the name stands for "Early Money Is Like Yeast") works to get pro-choice Democratic women elected to office at the local, state and federal levels, noted there are other...

    EMILY's List today released its first-ever presidential scorecard, a look at how the GOP candidates rank on issues of importance to its membership.Not surprisingly, the campaign organization that backs Democratic women who support abortion rights judged the Republicans' stances on Democratic-supported measures. For example, the candidates were dinged for opposing President Barack Obama's health care law or his jobs act or for opposing funding for Planned Parenthood. They were ranked on their support for Budget Chairman Paul Ryan's budget overhauling Medicare and their positions on equal pay legislation, family and medical leave legislation or the Equal Rights Amendment.EMILY's List also...

This is what the office of the President at Notre Dame is sending in response to people asking about why Roxanne Martino was invited to sit on their board: Ms. Martino (along with her husband, Rocco) is a Notre Dame graduate, and she is fully supportive of Church teaching on the sanctity of life.She has through the years contributed to organizations that provide a wide range of important services and support to women. She did not realize, however, that several of these organizations also take a pro-choice position.This is not her personal position,...

    In 1980, the course of national politics may have turned on one brilliantly framed question: Are you better off than you were four years ago? Now, with the crucial midterm elections less than three months away, were being asked, in essence, another question one that could resonate through the 2012 presidential campaign: Whos your Mama Grizzly? Unlike Ronald Reagans classic query, which he offered during his final televised debate with then-President Jimmy Carter a week before the 1980 election, the Mama Grizzly battle is being played out on YouTube, in a sign of the times. Heres another, perhaps more...

The campaign will center at first on a new website, which highlights some of the more controversial things Palin and her candidates have said during the election cycle. But the site...

The ordination of women is now classified as a "crime against the sacraments," which includes any action that defiles or desecrates the Eucharist.

    WASHINGTON Independent advocacy groups will be able to spend more money to try to influence federal elections under a decision Friday from a federal appeals court that overturned rules limiting nonprofits' campaign spending. Three judges of the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington agreed with Emily's List, a nonprofit that backs women Democratic candidates who support abortion rights, that the regulations limited free speech rights. The Federal Election Commission enacted the rules in 2005, after concerns were raised about the amount of unlimited "soft money" contributions used to fund attacks in the 2004 election. The FEC said nonprofits would...
