The third and final Presidential debate is over and Obama finally had a solid victory. However, the issues were on foreign policy which the American public is less concerned about compared to domestic issues.
Back on the campaign trail, while Mitt Romney seemed to have narrowed on the losing gap, a few more setbacks strike the GOP.
First, Indiana Republican Senate candidate Richard Mourdock makes a public statement that pregnancy caused by rape is something “God intended” and doesn’t justify an abortion. Just like how Todd Akin made a similarly stupid statement in August and is facing a loss in the Missouri Senate race, Richard Mourdock is looking at a loss in Indiana. The Democrat challenger in Indiana preparing to defeat Mourdock is Joe Donnelly.
Then in Utah, a diligent and hardcore Republican fundraiser named Greg Peterson commits suicide. He was charged with rape, so it's nice to know your fellow Republicans like Akin and Mourdock are on the side of criminals and rapists like Greg Peterson, rather than the victims of rape.
GOP Fundraiser Charged With Rape Kills Himself
Utah Republican fundraiser Greg Peterson escaped 25 charges of assault, rape, and kidnapping by committing suicide Tuesday in the same cabin he once used both to host political events and allegedly rape some of his victims. He’d been released from jail on Friday on a $2 million bond, but faced life in prison if convicted of all the charges. Utah officials say Peterson, who hosted events for Republican Sens. Orrin Hatch and Mike Lee, Rep. Jason Chaffetz, and Governor Gary Herbert, among others, met many of his alleged victims through Mormon dating websites.
