Happy Sexual Assault Awareness Month From New Hampshire

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, and today is the National Day of Action to raise awareness about sexual assault.

So today’s story is from New Hampshire, where teabagger and GOP candidate for Governor Jack Kimball did his part on Tax Day to raise awareness of sexual assault and rape, as he joked to a crowd:

In Concord, gubernatorial candidate Jack Kimball drew cheers with an anti-tax message. He decried the state’s taxation of business while criticizing its relatively low level of services.

“I don’t mind paying my fair share, folks,” he said. “I don’t think any of us do. But I do mind when I’m raped. It’s awful.”

According to the New Hampshire Coalition Against Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault, 112,909 New Hampshire women (or 22.7% of all women in the state) have been sexually assaulted at some point in their life.  Nationally, 17.6% of women report having been sexually assaulted at some point in their life.

Har-dee fucking har-har, Mr. Kimball.

I hope you face the same fate as Republican Clayton Williams, who after joking about rape lost a 20-point lead in 1990 against Ann Richards in the race for Texas Governor.

Because until the 19th Amendment is repealed, the ladies do vote. And even Republican wimmins aren’t so big on rape jokes.

I’m actually surprised the rape joke is not part of the Republican National Platform. I just kinda assumed it would be.

Jezeus Christ in a cracker, I can’t believe it’s been twenty years since Claytie made that crack.

I feel old.
