What I think about when I'm awake at 2am...
In a tape of the committee meeting obtained by The (Columbia) State newspaper, (John Graham) Altman asked why the bill's title "Protect Our Women in Every Relationship (POWER)" mentioned only protecting women.
Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Harrison (R-Richland) suggested calling the bill the "Protecting Our People in Every Relationship Act", or "POPER," the newspaper reported.
A voice on the tape is heard pronouncing it "Pop her." Then another says "Pop her again" followed by laughter.
"And they wonder why we rank in the bottom on women in office and we lead in women getting killed by men," Rep. Gilda Cobb-Hunter (D-Orangeburg), who sponsored the bill, said later.
Yeah, alluding to "popping" a woman when you're talking about violence against women is a real knee-slapper. Dicks.
