Hatch uses expletive to describe woman

From today’s Star Tribune article on Hatch and his Medica foul-up:

Animosity surfaced near the end of Hatch's testimony when [Marianne] Short recounted a conversation Hatch had with one of her partners at the law firm of Dorsey & Whitney. Short asked Hatch if he described her with two expletives to her partner and threatened to take state business away from the firm.

Hatch denied using the phrase or making the threat. He said he was only upset that his pretrial deposition could not be conducted at the Capitol where he could be close to his office at a time when state government was shutting down in June.

This just goes to show you the caliber of Hatch’s personality. There is no room in the Governor’s Mansion for someone like Hatch, who can’t treat women with respect. I hope that the DFL activists punish him for his comments.

You're right, Minnesota politicians need to treat women like the GOP Golden Boy, Norm Coleman, does. You gotta love the ladies, all of them.

So, you're ok with Rukavina advocating the absue of women when the disagree with you? What a stellar human being.

Give me a break. Hatch's abusive behavior is bad period - whether to a man or a woman.

Rukavina's comments about Pat Anderson were inappropriate. I believe Rukavina apologised for his statements about Anderson. I don't think Rukavina meant his comment literally. I think it's the way he talks.

If you are upset with Rukavina, you should also be upset with the Slap Hillary website.
