Verbatim: Mourdock was terribly disrespectful to rape victims

Mourdock

Statement as issued Wednesday by Indiana Democratic Party Chairman Dan Parker:

"Richard Mourdock is trying to walk away from his reprehensible comments last night and claim that we misrepresented his assertion that pregnancies resulting from rape are part of God's will. His Presidential nominee, Mitt Romney, who won't say if he still endorses Mourdock, took his words that way. I'm a pro-life Catholic, and I took his words that way. What he said was extreme and terribly disrespectful to rape victims, and he knows it. Before last night, Richard Mourdock was just a Tea Party Zealot, now he is an extreme Tea Party Zealot. He just disqualified himself to be Indiana's next U.S. Senator."
