When it comes to helping rape victims in his state, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (R) seems to have other priorities

Last night on Current TV’s Countdown with Keith Olbermann, fill-in host David Shuster called out Christie for holding up a bill that will prevent rape victims from being charged for their own rape kits.

The state’s legislature signed the bipartisan supported bill in the spring, but Christie has been sitting on the bill for 10 weeks.
