Coakley flier: Scott Brown opposes medical treatment for rape victims or something

posted at 5:13 pm on January 16, 2010 by Allahpundit

Well, of course he does. That’s part of the GOP’s party platform, isn’t it? “Article XI. Leave victims of brutal sexual assaults to die.”

We’re actually about to see some legal action over this one.

The flier reportedly says “1,736 women were raped in Massachusetts in 2008. Scott Brown wants hospitals to turn them all away,” according to Greg Sargent’s blog.

Dan Winslow, counsel for the Scott Brown for U.S. Senate campaign, will hold a media availability at 4 p.m. today to announce the criminal complaint resulting from a recent mailing paid for and sent by the Massachusetts Democratic Party, according to a press release sent out by the campaign…

“The campaign’s rhetoric has gone from negative to malicious,” Massachusetts Republican party spokeswoman Tarah Donoghue told The Daily Caller from Brown’s weekend bus tour Saturday. “It’s outright offensive and it’s a distortion of Scott Brown’s record.”

No word on the charge but it’s a comfort to know that the state’s own attorney general might be in legal jeopardy due to the sheer viciousness of her smears. (Not the only legal trouble she’s in today, either.) Here’s what the Coakley campaign would have you believe amounts to wanting to see rape victims turned away from hospitals:

The 2005 amendment that Brown sponsored in the state Senate would have allowed a physician, nurse, or any other employee to deny rape victims an emergency contraceptive if it “conflicts with a sincerely held religious belief.’’ The facility would have had to have someone else who could administer the contraceptive or refer the victim to another facility at no additional cost to the patient.

The amendment, which did not pass, was attached to a bill that he ultimately voted for, which required emergency rooms to provide the contraceptives to rape victims.

He wanted a limited religious conscience exemption for ER workers, with no extra financial burden to victims, and when he didn’t get it he voted to provide emergency contraception anyway. Translation: Scott Brown hates rape victims. And to think, if only Massachusetts had followed the Coakley plan of keeping Catholic hospital staff out of emergency rooms, all this unpleasantness might have been avoided.

I wonder what could have spurred her to such desperate depths. Hmmmm. The only new poll out today (so far) is ARG’s, which has Brown up by three among likely voters but also comes from a firm with a history of wide misfires. Exit quotation, for what it’s worth: “A total of 9% of likely voters say they have already voted by absentee ballot, with Brown leading Coakley 58% to 42%.”

Update: You have to see the flier to believe it. Even lefty Greg Sargent feels obliged to correct the record.

The desperation is thick at Sargent’s sewer – they’re trying to advocate flooding news comment sites to give the apprarence that they’re “outnumbering” everyone.

# jw | January 16th, 2010 at 11:54 am

The comments on the Boston Globe site are about 10 to 1 in favor of Brown–please help right that at :
http://www.boston.com/news/local/massachusetts/articles/2010/01/16/obama_steps_into_suddenly_taut_senate_race/?comments=all&plckCurrentPage=1

If enough of us went on the Boston Globe and recommended the pro-Coakley and did it again and again I think it would help and give encouragement to the Democrats in Mass.

ANY MEANS NECESSARY.

This is what the Democrat party has become and has sunken to.

Nothing to offer except corruption, taxes, corruption, cockiness without merit, corruption, taxes and taxes. And themselves as the slavemasters. And lawbreaking. And cheating.

AnthonyK on January 16, 2010 at 10:06 PM

Ahem, OT but I thought folks want to know, it appears even if Temp. Sen Kirk wants to delay certifying, his own vote becomes null and void as of election day. As per Copngressional Research Service:

“[p]revailing practice is for state governors to fill Senate vacancies by appointment, with the appointee serving until a special election has been held, at which time the appointment expires immediately.” This practice is in accordance with the Seventeenth Amendment, which provides that “the legislature of any State may empower the executive thereof to make temporary appointments until the people fill the vacancies by election as the legislature may direct.”

Archimedes on January 16, 2010 at 10:06 PM

canopfor on January 16, 2010 at 8:54 PM

Sorry man. My wife’s son is in Afghan too.

fossten on January 16, 2010 at 10:07 PM

And further more…

“However, the Senate has previously found that substantially similar state laws cannot extend the term of an appointed Senator beyond the date of the special election.

On May 7, 1937, George Berry was given a temporary appointment as U.S. Senator from Tennessee to fill a vacancy created by the death of Senator Nathan Bachman. On November 8, 1938, a special election was held to fill the seat. In accordance with Tennessee’s normal practice, it took several weeks before the votes were counted and a winner was not certified until January 3, 1939. The applicable Tennessee law provided that a temporary Senator “shall hold office until his successor is elected at the next biennial election and qualifies.” Based on this law, Berry claimed that he was entitled to hold office and be paid until his successor was certified and/or actually seated by the Senate.

Berry’s claim was referred to a subcommittee of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which held a hearing and considered legal arguments on the matter. A legal analysis prepared for the subcommittee found that “in view of [Seventeenth Amendment’s] purpose of providing for representation in the Senate by persons elected by popular vote both for full terms and for unexpired terms it seems reasonable to assume that no temporary appointment was to be authorized except for the intervening period between the creation of a vacancy and the day when the people by their votes actually elect a successor, or, in other words, until they elect a person to fill the vacancy.”

Lovin every minute of it!

canopfor on January 16, 2010 at 8:54 PM

Prayers ascending.

OmahaConservative on January 16, 2010 at 10:11 PM

And now we’re just going to pile on.

“In addition to the text and purpose of the Seventeenth Amendment, the analysis relied on various Senate precedents, including an October 15, 1918 ruling by Vice President Marshall, who found that the phraseology of the amendment was “radically different” than that of various state laws that permitted appointees to serve until their successors were “elected and qualified.” Marshall concluded that regardless of the fact that Senators-elect must “run the gamit of executive, administrative, judicial and senatorial investigation before they are entitled to qualify and take their seats as Members of the United States Senate,” the terms of their appointed predecessors nonetheless expire on the day of election. While the Vice President noted that “[e]quitably, it would seem that the present incumbents ought to be permitted to hold until their successors elected on the 5th of November have been sworn in as Senators, [] such . . . is not the law.”

The Senate subcommittee and committee concluded, based on its hearing and review, that “the term of service of a Senator appointed to fill a vacancy in an unexpired term ends on the day when his successor is elected by the people.” 1939 Congressional Record, p. 998. There was evidently no controversy among either the subcommittee or full committee regarding this legal conclusion, and the committee then presented a resolution to the Senate for adoption, expressing the view that Berry’s term of service expired on November 8, 1938, the date of the special election. As Senator Connally, a member of the subcommittee, explained to the Senate, the fact that the Tennessee statute purported to extend Berry’s term until the qualification of his successor was of no force because the statute was “plainly in conflict with the provisions of the seventeenth amendment.” Accordingly, the Senate adopted the proposed resolution without dissent. 1939 Congressional Record, p. 1058.

Based on this authority, it would appear that a valid point of order could be raised as to Senator Kirk’s participation in Senate proceedings after January 19, 2010.”

It reminds me of a skit done by Mr. Show where two sets of competing campaign adds eventually devolved into one claiming his opponent was pro-cancer because he didn’t go to some event.

This is just further proof that the democrats think Americans are idiots. As if nominating some arbitrary functionary to fill a senate seat they believe is entitled to them isn’t enough.

It’s still shocking that reality is becoming as bizarre as satire.

Does anyone out there still feel like this country is past the point of no return? No way.
Jan 19th is almost a year to the day of O’s swearing in and if Brown wins, his presidency is pretty much done, unless he goes to the center. But his heart wouldn’t be in it.

It’s a really bad idea for the Democrats to say that Scott Brown will do something on January 19. It reinforces the idea that he’s going to win, which fits the current media narrative.

Jaibones on January 17, 2010 at 9:08 AM

And just one more fun tidbit in this race: if Brown wins, they truly will use every device to delay seating him, and Bowney Fwank will once again look like the lying nitwit that he is.

I’m not counting on Brown winning, bad Karma, eggs in baskets, etc. Boston is nearly as politically corrupt as Chicago, and it will take a huge victory to overcome that.

Just sayin’…if lightning strikes and he kills the Wicked Witch of the East (The Boston Dem-Mob Party)…

I chatted with the hotair posters yesterday at the Judge Napolitano constitutional conference. They were looking for you.

Great meeting! Lots of 10th amendment and healthcare resolution efforts being made at the state legislature level. And of course a fabulous address from the judge.

I played and sang the tunes that I have on YouTube and took questions with another physician in the healthcare breakout. One woman lamented that she felt no one at Sen Nelson’s office paid any attention to her as a layman. We both replied that he didn’t seem to listen to doctors either.

I then suggested she try to chat with him the next time he goes out for pizza. ; )

misterdregs on January 17, 2010 at 11:49 AM

It would be a great week if Brown wins and some reporters ask Obama what he thought of such smears since he campaigned for Coakley. Even better if they have the balls to point out how similar lies were told about Palin.

????? what are you talking about? Do you know basic biology?

An embryo is the beginning of conception. Being fertile for a woman means that the egg has been released. Sometimes, just sometimes, a person can become pregnant because the egg has released early or the sperm has remained alive long enough to implant the egg. However, in the less fertile time there is no failure of the embryo to implant!!!!!

The basics in biology should tell you that once the sperm has penetrated the egg then the embryo has begun, and then it travels to attach to the wall of the womb. That process does not take very long…… hell yeah I know all about that one……………….
