Invidious comparisons

This isn’t the first time that a Republican/conservative political figure has made offensive comments about rape. Former U.S. Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO) made now-infamous references to “legitimate rape” on a St. Louis TV talk show while running for U.S. Senate in Missouri in 2012, Former Indiana Treasurer Richard Mourdock claimed that pregnancies caused by rape are a “gift from God” in a 2012 U.S. Senate debate in Indiana, and Wisconsin’s own Roger Rivard lost re-election to the state assembly in 2012 after claiming that “some girls rape easy” while talking about statutory rape.
