This woman's claims should indeed be taken seriously. After all we hear daily now how the fears of Kathleen Savio and Stacy Peterson were practically ignored.

Domestic violence is a serious issue. We have tons of posts about Todd Aiken and whether or not he should step away from this next election while important and more relevant stories like this go without comment. Thanks Red for taking a stand. I bet she is afraid and she probably should be.

She should know better than to not fix him a turkey pot-pie.....she need to get back in to the kitchen and quit blabbering about getting her nails and hair done with the rest of her crow friends! Don't she know that times be hard????
