  •  Not all the Repigs in the House (0+ / 0-)

    who were against VAWA were men.

    One of the most Odious was Ann Marie Buerkle, of upstate NY's district 25 (now 24).  She walked right down the path led by Paul Ryan, Shelly Moore Caputo, Sarah Palin, Alan West and Operation Rescue.  

    Thank goodness Dan Maffei regained his seat and soundly beat her the last election.  

    Even if she doesn't run again (she probably won't), Repigs are undoubtedly plotting to retake the seat, with someone less reactionary.  Someone pro-guns, anti-gov't, no-new-taxes but not as loud on the anti-women issues.
