A Democrat said this?

MP900315598I’m surprised that anyone running for office, Democrat or Republican or anything else, would say something like this:

To quote the article from the Huffington Post:

“Lloyd Oliver, a Democratic candidate for district attorney in Harris County, Texas, has a problem with domestic violence: He thinks it’s prosecuted too much.

Oliver told the Texas Observer Wednesday that domestic violence is “so, so overrated.” If elected, he indicated he’d redirect resources away from family violence to focus on other issues.

Harris County has the highest rate of domestic violence homicides in the state. According to a report by the Texas Council on Family Violence, 30 women were murdered by intimate partners in 2012.”

Do I even need to say anything about this? I didn’t think so.
