Ron Johnson Called Out On MSNBC For Urging Barriers To Childhood Sexual Abuse Litigation

Family values party and GOP Senate candidate Ron Johnson's recent public stance against litigation rights for childhood sexual abuse victims earns the freshly-shaven candidate some stunning face time on Keith Olbermann's "Countdown" program tonight on MSNBC.

One of those victims - - a self-disclosed Johnson supporter (presumably now a former supporter now) - - tells Olbermann that Johnson had not been forthcoming about his membership on a key Church litigation review committee in Green Bay when Johnson testified in opposition to easing victims' rights to sue.

And that Johnson's opposition was superficial, while victims had continuing mental anguish that a day in court could help relieve.

I'll post the segment soon - - update: here it is - - and you can access video of his controversial public appearance on the issue here.
