McCain lied. Didn’t cancel fundraiser with rape-jokester. Only postponed it.

This guy’s rape joke is infamous. He’s the one from Texas who said that if a woman is being raped she might as well lie back and enjoy it. I remember this jerk.

On Friday, McCain says he’s canceled a fundraiser with guy who tells rape jokes:

Clayton Williams stirred controversy during his 1990 campaign for governor of Texas with a botched attempt at humor in which he compared rape to weather. Within earshot of a reporter, Williams said: “As long as it’s inevitable, you might as well lie back and enjoy it.”

But yesterday we learned that the event has simply been postponed (I guess June is far too early for rape jokes – better in August).

But Saturday afternoon, the McCain campaign told the Houston Chronicle that the Midland event had been postponed until this summer and would be held in a public venue.

This pig says he’s raised $300,000 already for McCain. And by McCain saying he’s still planning on having the fundraiser later this year, he obviously has no problem with this guy or his attitude towards the rape of women. Then again, McCain is the guy reportedly called his wife the c-word. I’m thinking McCain’s outreach to Hillary voters isn’t going so well.
