This is one of those stories that is so infuriating that I have no additional commentary. I'd just be sputtering, swearing, and typing in ALL CAPS.
Such was the charge that Judd told a group of supporters at a private dinner in Louisville, “I have been raped twice, so I think I can handle Mitch McConnell.” The actress’ apparent flippant comparison of a political campaign to sexual assault spread like Ebola across the Internet, leading some to classify Judd as the Democratic version of Todd Akin.

The problem is, it never happened.
All the while, I imagine McConnell sitting back, watching the antics with his sly, tight grin, enjoying how a small group of Democrats duped the so-called liberal media into creating the false narrative of a Democratic civil war. Only a master politician could get so damn lucky.
Sometimes I hate writing about politics. Very few things have infuriated me the way covering some of these stories has.
