    or domestic violence. and now congress, rather GOP, is being fuck heads with VAWA:

    Senators tussled Thursday over whether Indian authorities should be able to prosecute non-Indians in domestic abuse cases, an issue that has delayed passage of legislation to renew the federal government’s main law in the fight against domestic violence.

    A final vote on reauthorizing the Violence Against Women Act is now scheduled for Monday.

    The 1994 act expired in 2011, but reauthorization was blocked last year by differences between the Democratic-led Senate, which is seeking to extend new protections for gays, lesbians, immigrants and Native American women, and the Republicans in the House, who said the Senate bill goes too far.
