Horrid Congressman Threatens Tribal Council With Violence at Hearing for Abused Women Services

Callie Beusman writes for Jezebel: ” If you’re at all like North Dakota Congressman Kevin Cramer, you’ll know that the best way to comport yourself in a hearing at which a deeply disenfranchised population is attempting to redress the systematic injustices it has endured for centuries — with a focus on the disproportionate rate of murder and sexual assault its female population faces — is to belligerently ignore all of the presenter’s comments, publicly threaten her people with violence, and, if you reduce a woman in attendance to tears with your vitriolic ignorance, it’s best to seize her and embrace her against her will. You know! Just crushin’ some Congressman business, nothing to see here.”
