In Wisconsin, GOPer Ron Johnson publicly opposed bill to help child sex abuse victims

Recent polls have shown political newcomer, Ron Johnson, the GOP Senate candidate in Wisconsin, ahead of solid progressive Russ Feingold. Johnson is spending millions of his own money to basically buy the seat. People in Wisconsin don’t know much about him. But, they’re going to know more after today. Video has emerged of Johnson testifying at the Wisconsin legislature against victims of child sexual abuse:

Oshkosh businessman Ron Johnson, the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate, made his first foray into politics in January when he testified against legislation aimed at making it easier for victims of childhood sexual abuse to sue their abusers.

Seriously, who sides with child sex abusers over victims?
