Senator Blunt was not persuaded by some Democratic concessions and voted “nay” today when the Violence Against Women Act came up for renewal. Not surprising from the author of the Blunt-Rubio amendment. Just burnishing his well-earned warrior against women cred. Let him know what you think about his battleground performance here.

Senator McCaskill voted to extend the VAWA and deserves our thanks. Link to her contact page here.

Next up – the bill makes its circus debut. Which is to say, it will go to the House where all the zany GOP clowns will probably go hog wild for a while, trying to limit the provisions of the Act to heterosexual, non-reservation dwelling women with citizenship papers.
