R Legislator Convicted for Assault on Women Still in Statehouse, Media Ignores

Did I say "R"? I meant "D". Which kind of explains why pretty much no one in the media is reporting this, yet they spend literally hours and hours of air time discussing what Republicans say. Because WAR ON WOMEN! or something.

Remember, this guy was actually convicted yet the first time I heard about it was when I got an email from DaTechGuy this morning. The media always frames these things as local aberrations when it's a D so pays it no national attention, but when the same thing happens with an R it's a national story because its indicative of some broader phenomenon.
