VAWA Passes Senate

CNN is reporting: "U.S. Senate passes an extension of the Violence Against Women Act by a vote of 78-22. The measure now goes to the House."

The House is, however, currently controlled by the GOP, who oppose additional protections and blocked its reauthorization at the end of the last session.

Come on, Republicans. Do the right thing for a fucking change.
