Cornyn hails VAWA law he opposed

Cornyn hails VAWA law he opposed
We talked last week about an unfortunate attempt at political spin: at least eight House Republicans issued press releases claiming they voted for the Violence Against Women Act,Isabel Marant Bottes, even though they opposed the bipartisan legislation signed into law last week.
Sen,pas cher Isabel Marant. The SAFER Act was rolled into the VAWA bill before it passed the Senate.
"An unacceptable national backlog of untested rape kits has compounded the pain for too many victims of sexual assault over the years. Today, we take a significant step toward reducing that backlog," Cornyn said. "I'm pleased with the wide bipartisan support the SAFER Act received and with the President's signature today,Isabel Marant Betty, law enforcement can begin working immediately to test outstanding kits and see that justice is served."
Now, it's true that Cornyn supported the SAFER Act. I'll gladly give him credit for doing so and I'm glad the proposal was included in the Violence Against Women Act. But what he neglected to mention while celebrating its success is that if Cornyn's position had prevailed, the entire proposal would have failed -- he supported an amendment to legislation he opposed and voted to kill.
