Did he keep beating her for 45 years?

"These actions were inexcusable, wrong and downright embarrassing," Parnell added. "Since then, my life has been changed by a remarkable woman, two amazing daughters, a forgiving God and a career that has taught me to cherish what I have."

1973 was a long time ago. Seems to me he changed his life for the better in the time between then and now.

Wife beating, even forty-five years ago, might make a difference to a Democratic voter. I believe recent history shows that's the only block of voters who would care.

Let's talk about the whoremaster who won that GOP primary. By definition he got a lot of support.

A question: Anyone here believe that most whores don't get abused most of the time?

I made a post to discuss that already, Zed. In hopes of minimizing the whataboutism here.

I absolutely believe that legal prostitutes are subject to much less abuse than those who work outside of the law.
I feel it is likely that prostitutes in Nevada's brothels (with their watchful owner and security measures) are subject to even less abuse than that.

Brothel owner Dennis Hof sexually assaulted two prostitutes in Nevada nearly a decade ago, including one woman he allegedly "raped and battered daily," according to the women and a new police report.
