VIRGINIA GOP STATE SENATE CANDIDATE: A MARRIED WOMAN CAN’T BE RAPED BECAUSE, AFTER ALL, ‘SHE’S IN A NIGHTIE’ | Next Tuesday, Virginia voters will decide whether they want to elect former state Rep. David Black as a state senator. Luckily for Virginians, Black has a substantial record by which to judge him. In 2005, Black proposed investigating all Virginians to see if any Virginians adopting a child were gay. He is also well-known for sending plastic fetuses to lawmakers to advertise his anti-abortion stance. He also fought to allow pharmacies to refuse to sell birth control, or what he called “baby pesticides.” But perhaps Black’s shining moment came when he stood against the prosecution of spousal rape cases in 2002 because, after all, “how on earth could you validly get a conviction in a husband-wife rape when they’re living together, sleeping in the same bed, she’s in a nightie,” he said. “There’s no injury, there’s no separation, or anything.” (HT: Jezebel)

^^I told my husband this - he rolled his eyes, walked back into the kitchen and said that dude is an idiot.
