Minnesota senator sparks online outrage with tweet about Kavanaugh accusations, Star Tribune, 9/23/18

State Senator Scott Newman, a Hutchinson Republican, tweeted Monday:

“Even if true, teenagers! Frankly, I don’t believe her. Almost 40yrs and now she self righteously comes forward to save us from a dangerous sex offender. This type of allegation seriously jeopardizes women with a legitimate claim, for who will believe them.”

Newman, in his third term and currently chairman of the Transportation Committee...

Newman was previously an administrative law judge and deputy sheriff, and the GOP nominee for state attorney general in 2014. He was the lead Senate author of an unsuccessful attempt to require people to use bathrooms and changing rooms that match their “biological sex.” During that political row, Newman said the transgender community’s assertive opposition to his bill persuaded him that they are “not the bullied. They are the bullies.”

2. "who will believe them."

Because of nasty men like this, we already know that no one will believe us! This prevailing attitude is at the forefront of the War on Women, and it forces us into second class citizenship as unworthy beings denied full parity and autonomy.

These neanderthal men need to driven from public office!
