Did this Indiana 'family values' legislator forget his values?
Indiana State Senator Brandt Hershman (R, of course) must be trying to break the hypocrisy meter. While he has been working feverishly as the author of a state consitutional amendment to prevent gays and lesbians from marrying, he neglected to keep his own marital house in order over the years.
Gary at Advance Indiana has the scoop on forced-birth advocate Hershman. The legislator’s ex-wife alleges that in 2000 he drove her to an abortion clinic and he paid for her to have an abortion. Even better, he then filed for divorce a week later. Nice. He said that he didn’t force her to do so, she claimed that he did.
