The reaction was strong when the Kentucky Democratic Party made sure people knew about shameful remarks from Sen. Dan Seum.
The comments were made to rape victims after testimony in support of a senate bill that would allow the collection of DNA (a cheek swab) after a felony arrest. Basically, the senator from Fairdale told the victims that he had suffered worse crimes himself through government “intrusion.”
Here are just a few of the numerous stories:
