‘Despicable’: Jim Jordan criticized for outrageous case of child rape

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) is coming under fire after he downplayed a report of a 10-year-old rape victim who had to leave the state for an abortion.

President Joe Biden brought up the disturbing case last week when he signed an executive order protecting abortion access, sparking a frenzy as right-wing media outlets claimed the incident never happened.

“Another lie. Anyone surprised? Jordan wrote with a link to a story that casts doubt on the rape report.

Jordan did not offer a correction but instead tweeted a link to a story confirming the case and calling for the accused rapist to be prosecuted.

He also deleted his tweet, but many people had kept screenshots:

Jordan’s critics on Twitter weren’t ready to let him off the hook.

Many called him out not only because of a misunderstanding of the situation, but also because of his own personal story.
