Dem. Sen. Patty Murray bemoans domestic violence, ignores woman beater Pat Moran


Washington Senator Patty Murray took to her soapbox today to reiterate the importance of protecting victims of domestic abuse. Earlier this year, the Senate passed a bill reauthorizing the Violence Against Women Act, and Murray is waiting on the House to follow suit.

The good senator stressed the importance of putting aside political differences to focus on the victims:

Murray: We should not pick and choose which victims of abuse to help and which to ignore. #VAWA #RealVAWA

— Senator Patty Murray (@PattyMurray) December 13, 2012

Murray: Voters clearly and decisively called for putting the protection of #women before politics or ideology. #VAWA #RealVAWA

— Senator Patty Murray (@PattyMurray) December 13, 2012

And then proceeded to turn domestic violence into a political issue:

Murray: I hope @speakerboehner & House #GOP hear this today. We are not backing down and we will keep fighting. #RealVAWA #VAWA

— Senator Patty Murray (@PattyMurray) December 13, 2012

Sure is a neat trick, huh? What Murray failed to comment on, though, was the importance of protecting abused women from slap-happy Democrats like Jim Moran and his son Patrick.

Comment on Morans kid? RT @pattymurray: Murray: Today marks the 232nd day since the #Senate passed an inclusive, bipartisan #VAWA. #RealVAWA

So @pattymurray is super proud that #VAWA (Violence Against Women Act) was passed! Can the Senator comment on @jim_moran and his son??

Gee, those crickets really are deafening.

Awww, who are we kidding? As we all know, that magical (D) after your name confers immunity from media and political scrutiny. Only Republicans beat women and prop up abusers; Democrats are just smacking sense into ladies who are asking for it.
