"The bill would effectively eliminate the idea of rape as torture."
- New York Times, September 28, 2006
The bill that the New York times is talking about here is the bill that Michael Arcuri supports.
I think Mike Arcuri should explain to us all why he supports a bill that eliminates the idea that rape of prisoners of war is a form of torture.
I also want to hear from all the Democrats here in New York's 24th congressional district who say that we ought to overlook this issue.
I want to hear from those Democrats why we should vote for a man who says that using rape against prisoners of war is a good idea.
By endorsing HR 6166, Michael Arcuri endorsed the use of rape. That's not just something I made up. That's the judgment of the editors of the New York Times.
Come on. Tell me why it's okay to vote for the pro-rape candidate.
Republicans can join in on this one too, because Ray Meier supports the torture-by-rape law too.
When will you allow your political party loyalty to give way to your sense of shame?
