Rebecca Kleefisch Supports Paul Ryan's "Forcible" Rape Distinction

Our own Lt. Gov. shows how tough it can be to stand with Paul Ryan:

In a masterful bit of Orwellian dissonance, Wisconsin's recall-surviving Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch (R) last week called Rep. Todd Akin's attempt to categorize rape "abhorrent, insulting" and "disgusting," before immediately reversing course and approving of VP nominee Paul Ryan's efforts to do the same.
Remember: the term was not thrown out there was in a vacuum.

Ryan and his House of Representative pal Todd Akin were proposing it as a limitation on federally-funded abortion access.
