As the war on women rages on, one Republican candidate has decided to wear his domestic violence conviction as a badge of honor.

A Maine Republican says he has guts because he was convicted for smacking his wife around.

Erick Bennett is running in a primary challenge against incumbent Susan Collins to be Maine’s next US Senator. According to Bennett, he’s qualified to be a senator because beating his wife makes him brave enough to stand up for “family values.â€

In 2003, Bennett was convicted of domestic violence against his wife, who divorced him after he attacked her. Of course, Bennett denied beating his wife and appealed. But the Maine Supreme Judicial Court upheld his conviction, finding that “the court did not commit clear error or abuse its discretion in excluding irrelevant evidence at trial,†and that “sufficient evidence does exist in the record to support his conviction.â€

In short, Bennett was rightfully found guilty. For his crime, Bennett was put where wife-beaters belong: behind bars. But like many “men†who are violent toward women, Bennett blamed the victim, the law, and the criminal justice system.

Bennett told the Bangor Daily News:

“All that needs to be done is you have to repeat what you wrote down in the police report and that allows the victim to be viewed as a credible witness,†he said. “So basically, if someone writes something down, it doesn’t have to be true. All they have to do is repeat that on the stand. That’s grounds for anyone to be convicted of domestic violence.â€

See? The Maine Republican isn’t to blame at all. His battered ex-wife and those mean ole liberal activists on the courts rigged the system against him. And that’s not all. Bennett also says that smacking his wife around and fighting to overturn his conviction proves he has the guts to be in high public office.

“The fact that I have been jailed repeatedly for not agreeing to admit to something I didn’t do should speak to the fact of how much guts and integrity I have,†he said. “If I go to D.C., I’m going to have that same integrity in doing what I say, and saying what I do, when it comes to protecting people’s rights, as well as their pocketbooks.â€

Man, that is sickening!

I hope this piece of shit gets not a single woman's vote and not that many from men either.

Being a convicted felon and woman abuser is not going to go far in a race unless he gets the MRA or fundy (reformed sinner) vote.

Ah. He seems to be saying he was wrongfully convicted, as opposed to saying beating your wife is a good thing. Still a jerk, though.

      It’s not supposed to be mosquito season right now but I still appear to have been bitten twice on the side of my foot. Bastards. I know I shouldn’t scratch but it’s so tempting… 😑

      Hello,
       
      I'm brand new to this forum. It was suggested to me by former and outspoken Remnant Fellowship member (Natasha Pavlovich) that I join this forum and put out here what I do. She also warned me that no one on here trusts, or trusts easily, and that I'd likely be assumed to be a Remnant plant or spy until vetted and verified as not that. Fair enough. 
      In short, and in truth, I'm a psychotherapist with 25 yrs experience in Franklin TN (less than three miles from RF incidentally) with a special interest in working with people formerly associated with cults, cult-like or any and all high control intitutions. I'm especially interested in working with those desiring not only deconstruct, recover and learn to thrive post-indoctrination, but those desiring to recapture or cultivate an authentic sense of theology without walls, or spirituality with borders. 
      To date, I've worked with former Amish, Mennonite, LDS/FLDS, FOG, and a those representing a whole slew of evangelical, fire and brimstone fear/shame/guilt-inducing institutions.
      I am especially interested in working with former Remnant Fellowship and Scientology members. I view RF as basically Scientology without the budget. 
      I'll leave it there. Much more can be gleaned about me through my website: therapyoutsidethebox.com or IG: @ therapyoutsidethebox
       
      Peace,
       
      Chris Hancock, LCSW
      Franklin, TN

      I'm a huge baseball fan. This year, MLB TV showed Liga Dominicana games in December and January and it was a fucking revelation. The players had so much fire and joy. The announcers with their charming DR accents were a blast, though I could hardly keep up with the Spanish. DItto the Serie del Caribe. As a White Sox fan, the MLB season is going to suffer by comparison. Te amo los Tigres del Licey!

      Had ankle surgery on the 22nd and am non-weight-bearing until the 7th, and it would great if I could REMEMBER that I'm not weight-bearing until I try to step on my splinted ankle.
