Wisconsin GOP candidate under fire after telling opponent that his fiancee should be forced to keep baby from rape

A Republican running for state treasurer in Wisconsin is under fire after telling her opponent that she hoped his fiancee would have to keep a baby fathered by rape.

Candidate Jill Millies (R-WI) had a “moment of frustration” when she made a comment about her opponent’s views.

On Facebook, Millies wrote that she hoped opponent Travis Hartwig’s fiancée would have to keep a baby if she was raped.

The exchange started when Hartwig posted a survey to Facebook asking in which circumstances should abortions be allowed.

Millies commented on the post by saying: “Travis keeps making me look better all the time! So Travis, when your fiancée gets raped, I hope she keeps the baby & when that mentally ill person shoots you with his 55 magnums or shotgun, but it’ll be ok because he didn’t have to get cleared to carry that gun! Your ways aren’t looking good now, are they?”

Hartwig was able to get a screengrab of the post before Millies deleted her comment.

On Thursday, Millies posted an apology for her remarks.

“Push come to shove, this is my first time in politics and I’m just sick and tired of Travis and his little minions coming onto my Facebook page and bashing the hell out of me all the time,” Millies said. “I guess I just blew it after a while,” she wrote.

The couple, known as Javanka, have been highly criticized for having had no government experience prior to joining the administration and needing presidential intervention after being unable to obtain security clearances.

Ivanka tweeted a quote from her husband at the "Peace to Prosperity workshop today in Bahrain" and urged her Twitter followers to watch his full speech.

Kushner's plan was rejected by the Palestinians before even being released.

The Navy accidentally nominated a convicted child sex predator to be a future department head

Published

on

On Tuesday, the Navy Times reported that Lt. j.g. Michael D. McNeil was nominated, along with several other junior service officers, as eligible to be a future department head by the Navy Personnel Command.

This would be somewhat surprising, given that McNeil is currently serving a 10-year sentence in federal prison in Texarkana, Texas, for soliciting sex from a 12-year-old deaf girl.

The reason why McNeil was listed as under consideration is that the Navy had not yet updated his records with the "civil action report" noting his conviction, which was handed down in March. Navy records still listed him as active duty and assigned to the guided-missile destroyer Lassen when the list was drafted.
