Back during the 2012 election, Democrats were quick to seize on some Republican words — like Todd Akin’s remark about “legitimate rape” and late-term abortion, orRush Limbaugh‘s calling Sandra Fluke a “slut” for wanting free birth control — to build the notion of a “war on women.”
But if you look past words to actual deeds, most of the action in the war on women seems to be coming from the Democratic front lately. Just consider these cases:
First, Democratic San Diego Mayor Bob Filner. So far seven women have accused him of sexual harassment. According to one report, Filner said, “You’ll have to excuse me for what’s about to happen. It’s your fault,” before pinning a woman in a restaurant booth. Other allegations include kissing, grabbing and assorted other inappropriate behavior.
