Straight From the Horses A*s --- Gohmert: ‘Our Republican females sent entirely wrong message’ by wanting rape exception to abortion ban

I'm thinking that the female members standing in opposition to the bill as written are by far more representative of the general population (both female and male) than either Gohmert or the GOP leadership.

But keep on plugging away Louie and sooner or later you and you tribe of reactionary religionists will succeed in making the conservative agenda, or whatever is left of a true conservatism, totally irrelevant.

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) on Tuesday accused GOP congresswomen — who he called “Republican females” — of sending “entirely the wrong message” when they derailed a 20-week abortion ban because it did not have an acceptable exception for rape.

During a conference call with pastor E.W. Jackson on Tuesday, Gohmert urged conservatives to continue to pressure Republicans in Congress even after bills like the 20-week abortion ban did not pass as expected.

“Really, I think that was driving the abortion bill — the pro-life bill — to the floor,” he said. “Before it had even gone through committee, our leadership was so anxious to show people, ‘Look, we are standing firm on these issues you care about.’”

“But there was an exception put on there that unless there was a case of reported rape — reported to authorities,” Gohmert continued. “Well, that became the dividing factor among some of our female members of the House, Republican female members. But some were adamant they didn’t want any exceptions, some were saying, no, we [should] not require it be reported to authorities.”

The Texas congressman argued that the congresswomen should have taken up their concerns with leadership before the bill came to the floor.

“I’m told that they’re still going to bring it back, but because there was such division among our Republican females, they pulled the bill that day,” he pointed out. “And that was extremely unfortunate, and it sent the entirely wrong message.”
Listen to the king of cheese. If you're wondering about the foregoing phraseology it is the sinere attempt to be polite.
