Wisconsin Dems caught Rep. Sean Duffy (R-WI) on tape saying he didn’t know what a trans-vaginal ultrasound was, which evoked laughter from his audience at a town hall meeting.
Per Raw Story and the audio, a woman asked Duffy whether he supported the Woman’s Right to Know her Unborn Child Act (yes, one of those b.s. names for a terrible bill). That lovely law would force a trans-vaginal ultrasound on any woman who chose to have an abortion. This bill is apparently a “priority” to Wisconsin GOP legislators who think unnecessary medical procedures that demean women is “long overdue.”
But back to Duffy. Does he support forcing one of these up a pregnant woman’s vagina against her will?
If you listen carefully, it sounds like his answer to that is, “I don’t understand what a trans-vaginal ultrasound is,” to which the woman, clearly stunned, says, “You don’t?!”
“I haven’t had one,” he remarked.
Ha. Ha. Ha. What a card. Here’s an idea, Sean. Get the male version of one. Get a trans-rectal ultrasound and see if you still find it amusing.
“I haven’t heard of it,” Duffy added. “And just like I told you I’m pro life, and I know that you are too, but I’m not willing to say I’ll support what you’re talking about because I haven’t seen the bill, even though we’re probably in agreement on that issue.”
So this guy is either woefully uninformed, willfully ignorant, or lying… and he’s definitely not funny.
