Does she ever listen to herself?

From Forest Hills Patch:

City Councilwoman Elizabeth Crowley, D-Middle Village, lashed out at Republican Bob Turner of Forest Hills Thursday, slamming him for voting for a “watered-down” version of the Violence Against Women Act.

The bill, which was up for renewal this year, originally included new protections for same-sex couples in abusive relationships and a confidentiality clause that protected women who called the police in cases of domestic violence.

The version that passed the house on Wednesday had those provisions stripped out.

“Yesterday, you and your Republican colleagues in the House of Representative rolled back protections for women who are victims of domestic abuse, and your decision puts the safety of half of your constituents — including myself — at risk,” Crowley wrote.

Half of her constituents including herself? So, all women in NY-9 are currently getting the crap beaten out of them and she's in one of those violent relationships? Did they let McLaughlin out of prison without our knowledge?

BTW, this is why she thinks she's qualified to run for the seat and why you should vote for her:

City Councilwoman Elizabeth Crowley (D-Middle Village) touted her life experience as to why she is the best candidate for the new Queens congressional seat in a sitdown with the TimesLedger Newspapers last week.

Crowley was the 14th out of 15 children in a close-knit western Queens family, worked as a restorative art painter and was the first woman elected to her western Queens Council district.

the Tax Enough Already patriots in the U.S. House of Reps. score once again.

Now if the Dem. controlled U.S. Senate would pass this bill and allow a budget, after 1300 days of stalling.

She doesn't have to.

Uncle "Virginia" Joe has got her covered.

She gets her perks
and will collect a nice pension.

That's why she's in office...
certainly not for her "brainy" contributions.

Interesting math she has there. The vast majority of women will never be victims of domestic abuse, so how can half of his constituents be at risk?

Furthermore, men and women are equally likely to initiate and engage in partner aggression.

In about half of all cases, the aggression is mutual, meaning that there is no clear-cut initiator of the altercation.

Although women are more likely to be harmed, males represent 38% of those who suffer an injury from partner aggression.

Female initiation of partner violence is the leading reason for a woman becoming a victim of subsequent violence.
