Every word of this:
“We've now gone through two rapid fire deception cycles in which first Ohio and then Indiana Republicans reacted to this story with mixes of denial and deception only to their stories collapse in no more than 36 hours.” https://t.co/XwubvFKmRA

First Republicans and their media enablers denied that the 10-year-old rape victim existed, and when that story collapsed, they tried to smear the doctor with false accusations that she’d failed to properly report the case, and then that story collapsed too.
The fact is, they’re in a panic because America is getting a look at the results of their policies, and it’s as horrifying as predicted. That’s what the lies and smears are about, and it’s going to get worse.
